When 4-5 groups were peforming together, there was a crescendo of joy and merriment under the white light of the six high mast metal halides, The viewing gallery was also a great success. Police were deployed in numbers to ensure traffic flow and ensure that the flow continued.
Many organizers met me at the dais and expressed their satisfaction at the arrangements.
In all, 69 protimas were immersed on Dashami day. Of these, 47 were New Town Pujas while 22 were from adjoining areas of Salt Lake, Rajarhat, Mahisbatan, Jatragach etc.
