Durga Puja pandal themes in Varanasi
Every year, Durga Puja pandals are decorated in different themes. The socio-religious associations that make arrangements for Durga Puja try doing different to make the pandals more attractive. This year, the Durga Puja pandal of Orderly Bazar in Varanasi is themed on the Chandrayaa-2 mission. It is amazing but the association behind the pandal did a massive job. And this theme has caught attention of the media not only in India but across the globe. It is the kind of support ISRO needs for its hard work.
