When Uttam Kumar Used To Fly Kites On Vishwakarma Puja

On Vishwakarma puja, Mahanayak Uttam Kumar used to go to the famous
'Salkia House' of late Pulak Bandyopadhyay, the popular lyricist.
Uttam Kumar used to fly kites with Pulak babu and his cousin brothers
on the roof. After the ceremony of flying kites, delicious foods
cooked for him attracted Mahanayak, and he used to enjoy the day in
that house of Howrah. After the lunch, sometimes he used to drive to
go to Topchanchi with relatives of Pulak babu. It was Uttam Kumar's
favourite place.

Pulak babu's elder sister Parul Debi was married to the son of Dwarika
Chakraborty - famous barister of Bhawanipore and Parul Devi's son
Sunil Chakraborty was bosom friend of Uttam Kumar. And by that source,
he used to go to Sunil babu's maternal uncle's home 'Salkia House'
with him. He used to go there on the eve of Vishwakarma puja and his
car was used to packed with kites and 'latai'.
