Autumn in England is a "season of mist and mellow fruitfulness". But to all with ties to India it is also a season of celebrations that mark the confluence of philosophy, religion, traditions art and culture in the form of Sharodutsav-the autumnal festival.
The ICS Durga Puja is a tribute to the spirit of Indianness that transcends the myriad differences to rejoice in our inherent oneness. Through a kaleidoscope of events we wish to commemorate the victory of good over evil and the joys of giving and sharing. The two day long celebrations draw as much inspiration from remembering the forgotten waft of the morning shefali and the dhakis first sound in the homeland afar, as from the collective will to imbibe from and impart to our sorroundings out here.
With the help of all our members and sponsors, we have brought in a new idol from Kumartuli, Kolkata. We commissioned artist Mintu Paul of Atindra Arts to create the new idol, a breathtaking fusion of traditional sculpting and modern fibre glass medium.
