As the plane touches down in Kolkata, I spy what appears to be row upon row of lowing lights in the distance, setting the dusk sky ablaze with their luminescence. The lights, reminiscent of a magical fairyland, cast their spell on me. Breaking my reverie, the passenger beside me remarks that Durga Puja is in full swing on the streets of Kolkata, the glowing lights demarcating pandals (makeshift structures) set up to mark the festivities.
