Sikdar Bagan Sarbajanin Durga Puja 2015

On this 103rd year, Sikdar Bagan Sadharan Durgotsav Committee has
adopted the theme - 'প্রণমি তোমারে' (salute to you). An artistic work
of cowboys of Anantapura district of Andhra Pradesh is the theme of
this year's puja. "Thalu Banmalata" is the name of this art work.
'Atagollalu' is the name of those cowboys who depict this art work on
the skin of animals. In fact, it is a form of puppet play. Several
mythological episodes are being depicted here by this art form.
