Shib Mandir's Theme 2014 Durga Puja

Theme-maker Subodh Roy is creating the theme of Shib Mandir. About 40
artists are making the pandal by wood, plywood, thermocole, cloth etc.
They're creating a boat just like 'মধুকর ডিংগা' of Chand Soudagar.
They're painting portraits in the style of Jamini Roy too. On this
78th year, Shib Mandir adopted the theme "বাণিজ্যে বসতে বাংগালি". The
theme would depict the past glory of Bengalees adopted business and
gained success like Chand Saudagar, Dhanapati, Srimanta and Behari
Dutta. But, the idleness in nature gifted them set back and the
Bengalees lost their past glory. To bring back the past glory, Shib
Mandir has adopted this unique theme.
