I took this photo at the Shovabazar palace in north Kolkata. This very old palace holds the oldest Durga Puja (annual festival marked by ceremonial worship of goddess Durga) in Kolkata and is thrown open to the public during the days of the festival. There isn't much to be seen, at least in the publicly accessible areas, but there are a few busts and portraits like these from the British era that make nice subjects for photographs.
Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
