Despite the panic around a possible third wave of covid-19, Kolkata is lit up for its biggest festival, Durga Puja. The construction of pandals is also in full swing, although these will remain out of bounds for visitors for a second year in a row due to Covid-19 restrictions.

They make idols for Durga Puja, Kali puja as well as for Ganpati, and more. Watch the video to find out how their sales have been impacted this year
