The College Para Puja Committee in West Bengal’s Siliguri aims to create a Durga Puja pandal with a difference. Organisers have chosen ‘environment protection’ as their theme, hoping to show how growing urbanisation has taken a toll on the planet.
A lot of people visit our pandal. We are trying to create awareness about how plastic affects people and the environment.Tanuj Singha, Secretary, College Para Durga Puja Committee
