2012 Theme : A Touch of Rajasthan on Lake View Road
  Rajasthan is among the richest states in India in terms of art and culture, and boasts of a rich and varied folk culture from villages which is really symbolic of the state.
Whether due to the hardships that are part of life in the parched landscape of the desert state or their strong war-like lifestyle, from ancient times throughout history, the people of Rajasthan have shown a strong desire to decorate their adverse surroundings with intricate patterns and a riot of colors.
Our pandal will seek to recreate the popular motifs and art forms that adorn the walls of havellis and dwellings in rural Rajasthan, complemented by Rajasthani adornments for our otherwise traditional Bengali Durga protima.
In order to further add to the ambience, arrangements are being made for live performances of Kathaputli and Kalbelia by flok artists from Rajasthan. While Katputli is the popular string puppet theatre, Kalbelia is one of the most sensuous tribal dance forms of Rajasthan that is part of community celebrations setto songs based on stories from folklore and mythology. There will also be stalls selling Rajasthani food specialties and handicrafts.
