The Stranger Things themed Kali Puja was hosted by Russa Shakti Sevak Sangh in South Kolkata. Jeet Roy, the secretary of the Sangh, told The Times of India that every year they make it a point to come up with something “a little different and unusual” in terms of pandal design. He continued: “Since Kali pujo reminds us of something supernatural, we thought the Stranger Things theme would be the right one to create a ghostly atmosphere. The pandal will stay until October 26 and the laser show will start in the evening around 6:30 pm”.
Diwali celebration is a very big festival all over India as many pay tribute to Goddess Laxmi on this day, and people from West Bengal and parts of Assam celebrate Kali Puja on this day.
