Paying tributes to the migrant workers who have suffered the most during this coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown, the Barisha Club Durga Puja committee in Behala, Kolkata has decided to install an idol of woman migrant worker with her children in place of Durga idol.

The Durga idols are replaced in order to tribute and highlight the plight of migrant workers who faced immense hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic, and are still struggling to survive this crisis. They were forced to walk hundreds of kilometres home as the country went into a coronavirus lockdown.

The statue, installed by the Barisha Club Durga Puja committee, shows a saree-clad mother with her child Kartik on her hip. Behind the statue of the mother are her two daughters. Together, the mother and her children will be seen walking towards the image of Maa Durga – a halo with 10 hands. The Barisha club has chosen ‘Relief’ as the theme for this year’s Durga Puja celebrations, in wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
