Durga Puja, the grand autumn carnival is gradually coming closer. The shopping frenzy is picking up, so is pandal decoration. And keeping pace are the various puja contests – those for big budget ones, the smaller ones in housing colonies, and myriad others in between.
In all cases the contest is for categories like best pandal, best protima, best lighting, best theme, and so on.
But what about the best osur or demon? ABP conducted an Amiee Osur (I am the demon) contest and the results have come out in today’s edition. Of the 12 selected, 6 are shown in the picture below. And yes, do not forget the ousoric (demonic?) poem. It’s in Bengali. Pass it on if you enjoy.
