Guha-Thakurta, Tapati

₹ 5500.00

Each year, Kolkata's Durga Puja scales new heights as the most spectacular and extravagant event in the city's calendar. From the turn of the twenty-first century, the festival has taken on a particular artistic dispensation that is unique to the contemporary city, demanding a new order of attention and analysis. The book's central concern lies in conceptualizing a specifically contemporary and artistic history of the urban festival.
