They came and went with great speed. At the durga puja this time, met up with old friends including some after a long while; now all spread far and wide across India, some busy with work, others with studies. Missed a few who had gone elsewhere, during the pujas. 4-5 days of the usual pujas, serving food (bhog), revelry & cultural activity, happened. Find more at the Jayamahal Puja blog, some pics here (Soham's Flickr page). To come out of the festive mood is a bit difficult. Shubho Bijoya to one and all, and let peace pervade.
