The idols of Maa Durga are being made by the artisans of Bengal.

In Sekar too, artisans from Bengal are busy making idols of Durga Mata day and night. With the establishment of Navratra on September 26, the artisans’ faces are lit up due to the booking of idols. In the era of Corona, the condition of artisans had deteriorated. If the idols were made during the time of the Qur’an, then the right buyer was not found. This time the artisans are working day and night after receiving continuous orders for the idols.

Idol making for Navratra in Sekar is in full swing. Artisans are working for 18 hours to make the idols. The artisans say that this is their ancestral work and it is this work that keeps their house running.
