NAVATRI:The photos show goddess Durga, depicted as a doctor

West Bengal is all set to celebrate the annual festival of Durga Puja despite the pandemic, and photos of an idol depicted as a doctor killing the ‘coronasur’ has taken social media by storm.

The photos show goddess Durga, depicted as a doctor wearing a lab coat and equipped with a stethoscope, killing a coronavirus-shaped Mahisasur. Instead of the traditional trident, the goddess seen holding a giant syringe that is being used to kill the demon.

The goddess’s four children have been depicted as other frontline Covid-warriors. While Ganesh has been depicted as a police officer, Lakshmi has been dressed as a nurse, Saraswati has been represented a teacher, Kartik has been portrayed as a cleaner
The post shared by a Facebook user Nittya Paul from Matigara said that the idol had been made in Siliguri in North Bengal by sculptor Jiten Paul. However, there are also claims that the idol is from Jharkhand and Assam. Presently, there’s little clarity on where the idol was created.

The original post was shared nearly 69,000 times and the photos are being shared on other platforms like Reddit and WhatsApp as well.
