West Bengal is the state of fairs and festivals. A large number of festivities take place in this state throughout the year. Amongst them, one of the most famous fests is the Gangasagar Mela. It is held in the month of January-February, on the Ganga Sagar Island, at the mouth of the river Hooghly in Bengal. It is attended by thousands of pilgrims every year. A dip in the water at this place, during Gangasagar Mela, is considered to be extremely sacred. On the day of Makar Sankranti (January 14), when the sun makes a transition to Capricorn from Sagittarius, it is said that the bath becomes a holy source of salvation.
About Suvankar Sen
I am Suvankar Sen. I am from Kolkata, India. My life long relationship with camera began back in 2012 and slowly it became my profession. I belong from “shonar bangla” Kolkata. My professional life covers my job as a networking professional, but my personal life is dedicated entirely to photography.
Photography is not only my passion but it a part of my life. After all day hard-work and busy schedules i often go for a walk with my cam and capture the night life of the busy streets in Kolkata. I do expertise in scenic photography, capturing people with their real actions and snapping amazing stuff that common people do. I spend my weekends with my group of photographers and visit places to snap the amazing stuff that nature has for us. Apart from my hobby i also engage into photography for certain occasions like parties, receptions etc..
