Shubho Bijoyaa

Another enjoyable Durga Puja comes to an end
(Jayamahal Durga Puja Samiti, Bangalore, India; 51st year celebrations, 09-13 October 2005)

Five days of worship, friends, community feasts, cultural programmes and much much more.
Shashti, Saptami, Ashtami, Navami and culminating with the immersion on Vijaya Dashami.
To come out of that mood is immensely difficult. The essence of Bengali culture and traditions so well etched out and blossoms during the season. The identity catches fire and all the joyous flames are fanned; even though the rains tried to dampen the spirits this time, however it failed.

A warm glow is all that remains, for the rest of the year , until the next Puja ...
