Like many other shows-Jatras too are waiting for the final nail
in the coffin.It was once patronized by the Rajbaris of North
Calcutta & elsewhere and gained popularity among the towns
and villages of Bengal.
The Chitpur Jatra para in North Calcutta have seen better days.
Later artists like Shanti Gopal & other extremely bright personalities

The big placards and buzz in that area seems to be diminishing and
with it -we are fast losing a long cherished tradition.The Natta Co-
mpanies figure came down from 140 to around 30 within ten years !
