Idol makers to face losses as Durga puja organisers cancel bookings

Apr 28, 2020 18:52 IST

Idol makers from Kumartuli, an artisans' hub in Kolkata to face huge losses as many Durga puja organisers from abroad are calling off the festivities this year at the last minute due to coronavirus pandemic. An official from the Kumartuli Idol makers Association said that out of around 200 Durga idols, slated to be shipped to US, UAE, Australia, Germany and UK, bookings of not more than five have been confirmed this year. Idol makers now hope that the Durga puja festivities within the city will at least not be dented by the virus.
