DURGA PUJA this weekend (No upload of regular stuffs but live stuffs of the festival)
After the completion of "Mahalaya" the countdown has begun.
Today is "Chaturthi" & all the warmth & excitement starts from "Shoshti" during Durga Puja.
Durga Puja is one of the biggest festivals in India (specially in Eastern India: which includes West Bengal, Tripura, Assam, Jharkhand etc. & also celebrated in rest of India).
Durga Puja depicts a tale of virtue winning over evil with Maa Durga demolishing the demon "Mahishasura".
So she is called by "Mahishasuramardini".
It is celebrated with a lot of zeal, pandals are created ("Theme Pujas" popular in Kolkata) & people from various age group & also from various parts visit those pandals to sight Durga Maa's Idol.
The Festival ends in "Dashami" when the Idols are immersed in waters.
I wanted to inform my readers about it as basically I have Indian readers who know about it, but have Global Readers too who aren't aware of the rituals.
Also, I announce that this weekend I won't be releasing any stuff but will upload photos clicked my me of Pandals which I will visit. Though, I don't visit much Pandals, still will try to upload as much as I can.
Our Locality (Club) also organizes Durga Puja, and I will provide regular updates on the day to day activities that will happen there so that many readers & get the feeling & touch of Durga Puja.
So all my readers, visit my Blog as total love will spread throughout in this festive occasion.
