Feudalisn ended long back. Post colonial india has seen a conscious attempt to abolish land based feudalism. The Marxist bengal has been forerunners of land reform. Hence, once feudal lords are now mostly occupying a low middle class status. This is especially true in rural bengal. There is hardly any surplus money to suatain the feudalistic pursuits.
Durga festival has been a hallmark of aristocracy. Today the most profound form of worship and festival of Goddess Durga is associated with community based and sponsored event of the capital city kolkata. However, feudal mode of worship is still continuing but in a poverty stricken manner.
This photo is takeb at one of those feudal lord's ruined palacea in somrabajar, hooghly district of west bengal.
