It has become an important way to communicate messages including on issues related to the environment. This year, organisers of a Kolkata-based puja in their 49th year bucked the traditional design style to opt for a marquee staging human-tiger conflict owing to rising population and habitat degradation. With life sized models of men and children dressed up as tigers depicting the Pullikalli folk form from Kerala , the marquee has installations of high-rises symbolising population growth and arrows whizzing out of them symbolising the impact on big cats.
Painted pug marks are scattered across the marquee. On similar lines, about a decade ago Joydip and his wife Suchandra Kundu, also a noted conservationist, began celebrating Vyaghravahini Durga puja-replacing the lion mount with a tiger-at their ancestral home in Kolkata in reverence to the tiger. In ecologically sensitive Siliguri subdivison in north Bengal, a marquee has portrayed the impacts of plastic pollution, in sync with the civic body stepping up its act on restrictions on plastic carry bag usage.

One contentious issue in this regard has been the use of lead-based paints and Plaster of Paris in painting and crafting idols and the subsequent immersion of those idols in water bodies at the conclusion of the festival. The central and state pollution control boards have rules in place but when it comes to implementation, norms do go for a toss, as evidenced from reports in Bihar, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Assam and Odisha.
The switch to lead-free paints has faced challenges due to the steep costs of paints compared to the inexpensive lead-laced counterparts. Mukherjee, however, said a section of puja organisers, such as in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, have also initiated green practices such as the use of specially created water tanks to immerse the idols away from the Ganga river.
