My second story on Maptia. I find the site useful to string together a bunch of topical images that would otherwise hold little meaning. Supposedly a four minute read, but image heavy.
The Durga Puja festival in Kolkata, India, is a great spectacle, and a celebration of the beauty and sprit of women!

Here is a link to a image-heavy story that I wrote on Maptia.
I find +Maptia a refreshing medium to share such stories. Possible that I will do more of these in the days to come.
Have a look if you have the time. :)
