“The City of Joy”- as it has known for decades, KOLKATA, has been on the news for past few months due to The well known cement company’s daring step of creating world’s biggest & tallest Durga Idol. Deshapriya Park and Star Cement is doing Durga Puja together this year and trying their best to make it a grand success. The Maa Durga IdolÂ is being executed under the authorityÂ of idol-maker Mintu Pal of Kumartuli, North Kolkata district.Â But this isn’t the big news. The Cement Manufacturing Company Limited[CMCL]Â has given everyone a chance to win various things upon just a small guess, “How Big is the World’s Biggest Durga Idol?”
This question has been on the top since it has asked because of the prizes that has been declared for the winners. The prizes are like this:

But the question has been on it’s same place since the beginning,”How Big?” They have revealed the height of Durga Maa’s Face, which is 12 feet. So let’s do some maths to solve this tough question, Science says,”The Body size of something is 8 times of the face size”. As Maa Durga’s face size is 12 feet. Then the body size should be 12*8=96 feet.
So, that means the Durga maa’s idol should be 96+12=108 feet(as per calculation). Though it’s not been revealed and science might lack from spirituality, so there are plenty of speculations on Durga Maa’s height. But as theory works it is finite. So, wait no more! participate to win the prizes.Â Hurry! To participate, call atÂ 180034534500 or whatsapp to 8100345345 or sms <STARDP> to 56070 or post on Star Cement facebook contest post.
