Kumartuli Protima for Durga Puja

Antorik Durga Puja is the first overseas organization who pursued Kumartuli artist Gorachand Paul & Sons to build fiberglass protima. Since the concept of protima immersion does not exist in USA, organizations used to have “solar” protima, the same protima year after year. But Antorik went one step ahead, showed the path to have fiberglass protima.
