Organizer: Dum Dum Park

Theme: Pancabhuta (The Five Elements)

According to Saivites (dominant school of religious and philosophical thoughtwithin Hinduism) there are five elements that constitutes this whole universe. These elements are: Prithvi (Hindi:पृथ्वी, Earth), Apas/Jal (Hindi:जल, Water), Agni(Hindi:अग्नि, Fire), Vayu (Hindi: वायु, Air), Aakash(Hindi: आकाश, Aether).  To symbolize this basic metaphysical belief we have chosen Hukka because it contains all five elements. There is 30ft long hukka (with backlight) decorated with transparent solid fibre has been installed at the middle of the pandal.
