Making of Devi

“Making of a Devi” is the story of the potters who has devoted their life in the making of the Hindu goddess – Durga. They are the artisans who sculpt divinity into the clay dug out from mother earth. The journey ends every year when the goddess is immersed in the holy river. In between lies the emotional journey of millions, and one frenzied festival called the “Durga Puja”, fondly embraced by all Bengalis, across the globe.
