Sheets on Durga Puja pandals due to Titli
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.
