FIFA World Cup: Idol Worship Time in Kolkata

It is idol worship time in in the City of Joy. Not of the Goddess Durga but of the football stars as the FIFA World Cup is set to get underway. And making those idols is Sukumar Rudra Pal, an idol maker who has a workshop behind Hiland Park in South Kolkata. He has made idols of Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar and a host of others. It has taken Sukumar more than a month at his workshop to make about 20 idols. They have been ordered by the Argentina Fan Club at Ganguly Bagan in South Kolkata. The idols will be put up as if on a chess board and as the game progresses, they will be moved closer to a giant replica of the World Cup trophy.
