On the Ichhamati on Bijoya Dashami 2011 - Hasnabad Ghat [01:39]
The first field trip as part of the India phase Ranan-Transport Theatre project was a visit to Hasnabad-Taki on the banks of the Icchamati river which forms part of the border between India and Bangladesh in the North 24 Paraganas district of West Bengal. Every year on Bijoya Dashami - as Bengalis the world over get ready to bid the goddess Durga goodbye after 5 days of festivities, patrolling and control by both Indian and Bangladeshi forces are relaxed on the Icchamati allowing a coming together and display of camaraderie which underlines the absurdity of this national border that cuts through Bengal.

Durga Festival With A Difference অন্যরকম দূর্গোৎসব [04:13]
On October 16, 2010 (Kartik 1, 1417 Bangla), it was the 'nabami' (9th day of bright fortnight) of the Autumn worship of goddess Durga. This is the biggest festival of Bengali Hindus. On that day, I went to visit an extraordinary festivity at Baantbilla, Jessore, where more than 400 effigies were made for worship and exhibition. The effigies depicted many gods and goddesses, mythical creatures and stories, even monks, poets and famous mortals. It was a brilliant artistic composition of heritage.
