What is quite interesting is that there has been a new pluck of artists who have really made hay while the sun shone. They made the best of their available talent, working almost 24X7 to finish their latest ‘assignment’ – decoration of the pandals they had been assigned with. Their design, their artifact, their intricate craftsmanship literally drew h...
