En Kolkata-Shitala Devi by Tika-estudio En Kolkata-Shitala Devi by Tika-estudio
Fotografía de mi estancia en India por dos semanas, con la asociación SMILE, en Madhyamgram, Kolkata.

Cerca de donde está la casa de la asociación, hay una pequeña capilla dedicada a esta diosa, que yo no conocía hasta llegar a India. Su nombre es Shitala (Shitola) Devi, y básicamente se dedica a curar enfermedades.

Cuando fuimos a visitar esta capilla, las familias de vecinos nos miraron a mi y a las otras voluntarias con mucha curiosidad y simpatía. Un grupo de niños se nos acercó y nos acompañó durante nuestro camino, muy orgullosos de poder saludarnos "Hello!"...

Fuera de esta capilla, hay otra estatua dedicada a Shitola Devi, que es más antigua y está más gastada por estar a la interperie. (tika-estudio.deviantart.com/ar…)

I was in India for two weeks with wonderful asosiation SMILE NGO, at Madhyamgram, Kolkata.

Near the house of SMILE, there is a little chappel dedicated to this goddess, whom before going to India I didnt knew. Her name is Shitala (Shitola) Devi, and basicaly, she cures deseases.

When me and the other volunteers went to visit this, the neighboors (most of them women) looked at us with warm curiosity. They smiled at us and seemed very happy that we wanted to see this statue. A group of little kids aproached us and accompanied us all the way, very cheerful and happy to say "Hello" to us...

Outside this little chappel, there is another Shitala Devi Statue, much older and not so well preserved. (tika-estudio.deviantart.com/ar…)
