A street art in the form of an alpana or rangoli has covered an entire 1.25-km stretch in South Kolkata, as part of Durga Puja decoration.
"An estimated 350 students from Art College have drawn various colour designs along a 1.25 km stretch from Sarat Bose Road to Vivekananda Park near the Samaj Sebi Sangha puja pandal," said Arijit Maitra, on behalf of the Samaj Sebi Sangha Puja Committee.
The initiative for the alpana was taken with support from a corporate house, he said.
Trinamool Congress MP Derek O'Brien tweeted with a video, " getting into the Pujo mood already. Lake Road. See what college students did. Wow."
The artwork was inaugurated by Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee yesterday. The unique rangoli became an instant hit on social media, with its pictures and videos posted and shared multiple times.
Only in Kolkata.
