Patna, Oct 6 (UNI) Despite pall of glooms following catastrophic flood in north Bihar this year, Durga puja is being celebrated with traditional fervour, enthusiasm and devotion across the state.

It appears that various organisers in state capital here have tried to show the solidarity of the devotees and puja revellers with the people, still reeling under the devastating effect of the floods in north Bihar, by depicting their suffering and agonies in cartoons and other graphics displayed at puja pandals.

In one such pandal at Govind Mitra road, the scene of breach in Kosi embankment and subsequent inundation of the vast chunk of areas in north Bihar was displayed through graphics controlled by electric.The IAF choppers dropping food packets and armymen engaged in rescue operation, displayed with rare acumen and technical skills creating real like situation, was also the cynosure of the puja revellers and devotees cutting across the age barriers.

The creative glare of the artists seems to have not missed the Amarnath shrine controversy which had earlier made news headlines.

In a pandal in East Lohanipur locality, Amarnath cave was erected which could be covered in about 220 foot-steps and after completion of this journey, you would have glimpses of the five feet high Shivlinga made from ice.Special care has been taken to ensure the ice does not melt and devotees would have the feeling that they were visiting the Amarnath cave to offer the obesiance to Lord Shiva.
