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

Kolkata-based artist Debojoti Chatterjee has worked on the pandal, depicting the impact of rising levels of pollution. According to Mr Chatterjee, environmental pollution has become a national problem. He added that the pandal hopes to educate people on the harm of plastic.
