Durga Puja

26 Sep

Today is Durgashtami,the main day Navratri. According to mythology, Goddess Durga killed the demon Mahishasura this day. Last 3 years I was in Kolkata celebrating Durga Puja. Unfortunately, I’m badly missing the festival this year. I have heard Durga Puja is the most famous festival of Bengal. But I never thought it to be the most grand of all other Indian festivals. Bengalis celebrate Navratri  right from Maha Sashti, the 6th day after Mahalaya.

To be cntd

Wish you all a Happy Durga Puja!!!
