A Durga Puja Committee (Shantipur) in Guwahati paid a special tribute to the ocean liner Titanic on the hundredth anniversary of the sinking of the ship.It took nearly four months to make this pandal.Not only it let out the smoke but also hooted at times.The inside of the pandal was centrally air conditioned for the comfort of the devotees.
Have a look at Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet ) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DeCaprio) .Heat and dust of Guwahati made them look and dress little(lot) different . Rose was dressed in a pink top and white knee length skirt while Jack chose a dark cotton full sleeves shirt and stone washed denim .
Have a closer look .They look little uncomfortable and surprised - thanks to the huge crowd of pandal hoppers .

Here is another pandal(Latasil area) themed as Bahai Lotus Temple of Delhi .This pandal had a mela (fair) like feel.
Kids enjoyed a ride on this manually operated merry go round .My six year old daughter had a tough time fitting into that small sized plastic cars but was happy anyway.
There were many stalls selling toys and snacks too.
