The atmosphere of the programme at the temple was a spiritual one. Ustad Kalakar Prabal Pramanik gave live demonstration of Paper cutting art to the assembled audience. Shri Ashoke Punditji co-ordinated the programme.
Ustad Kalakar Prabal Pramanik made a paper cutting image of Mahishasutra Mardini Durga on the spot while the "pundits" chanted shloakas on the praise of Devi Mahishasramardini.
