Sheets on Durga Puja pan­dals due to Titli

The New Indian Express - - INDIA -

Cy­lone Titli has caused medium to heavy rain­fall in Kolkata and other south Ben­gal dis­tricts caus­ing Durga Puja or­gan­is­ers to cover the pan­dals with mas­sive plas­tic sheets to pro­tect them from wa­ter dam­age. Many of the pan­dals are in­tri­cately-de­signed and based on spe­cific themes and wa­ter dam­age could com­pletely ruin the art­work. Teams of vol­un­teers across the city have been tasked with draw­ing cov­ers over the pan­dals in an event of rain. With rains dur­ing the Puja al­most cer­tain now, or­gan­is­ers can only hope that it does not rain dur­ing the evening when the crowds come out by the mil­lions.
