APSS Winners 2015

Tala Barowari

Theme and Idol Artist : Subrata Banerjee

Theme : Raising a voice against use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

The theme this year is to raise a voice against use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). Goddess Durga has been depicted in the form of Hybridashuromardini and she is leading the fight against the use of GMO. A Devil's Workshop has literally been created in the interiors, which signifies the catastrophic efforts of hybridization and cross-breeding to mankind and the overall ecosystem. There is a distinct inspiration taken from Sukumar Ray's iconic TyanshGoru. One can spot a banana with the face of a fish, a sheep with the body of a kangaroo and a hippo peeping out of a kangaroo's pocket. In line with their theme, they have not used any plastic for the construction of their Pandal this year.
