A Bengali artisan, Atul Pal, is known for creating the Raudra form of Goddess Durga along with his team. People come to him from many districts in the state to get idols prepared for the festival.

Atul told ANI, "I along with a team of 25 people of Bengali artisans made Ganesh idols for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival and Goddess Durga idols for the Navratri festival. Preparations for the making of idols start six months before the festival begins and the most attractive sculptures are made at our place." Three statues containing Kalka Mata, Mehtarani Mata and Kaal Bhairav have been installed at a pandal in the Musakhedi area in the city.
