From Goddess Durga clicking a photograph of a visitor with an AI smart camera in one puja marquee, to drawing of traditional ‘alpana’ before the idol by gender minorities in another – Durga pujas in Kolkata have everything on offer. The AI (Artificial Intelligence) smart camera has been placed inside the third eye of the Durga idol in a north Kolkata community puja and the device will click the photo of a person who will stand before the deity with his or her hands folded. The #MaaClicks theme is this year’s attraction at the puja of Hatibagan Sarbojonin. The concept is being executed in association with the online edition of a popular Bengali daily. If that is the attraction of the north Kolkata puja, the Adi Ballygunje Sarbojonin Durgotsav in the southern part of the city, seeks to build awareness among pandal hoppers with its theme, “Freedom of Love” that highlights the need for inclusiveness of the LGBTQI community in the society.
