Durga Puja: Kolkata organises mega rally to thank UNESCO for heritage tag

The grand rally organised by the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal administration to thank UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) for giving Durga Puja the heritage tag has drawn a pat on the back from the world agency.

“What a sight. The last time I met the chief minister around three months ago, she said she wanted to organize a big celebration and a big thank you to UNESCO. But I have to say I did not expect anything so big. Congratulations. I have personally not seen such enthusiasm centering around an inscription as I have seen around Durga Puja,” said Eric Falt, director and UNESCO representative to India, Bhutan, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.

In December 2021, the biggest festival in West Bengal got a heritage tag with the UN agency inscribing ‘Durga Puja in Kolkata’ on the ‘Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’.
