Saraswati Puja Photos from JNU campus

Posted in JNU by Vik on January 22, 2010

JNU campus students celebrate Saraswati Puja, Durga Puja and some other festivals. The following photos are of the Saraswati Puja celebrations (murthi) at JNU KC OAT and one photo of the puja at Teflas.

Saraswati Puja is organized at two places in the campus: one is by students comprising mostly Bengali students as organisers (though anyone is welcome to join) and the other is by Oriya students (Odisha Sanskrutika Parishad) in the Teflas student activity centre in JNU Campus. The venue for the first Puja this year was KC OAT unlike the previous occasions when it happened between the Kaveri and Periyar hostels.

I was there at about 11 am (20 January 2009) and stayed there for some 35 minutes and left before the puja began. I am putting them in the order that I shot them. Photos are not digitally enhanced thanks to lack of time (and my amateur skills). See JNU Durga Puja here and visit all my JNU related blogs and posts.
