Not an alien anymore. Not surprised looking at the city drenched in jubilation with the homecoming of Durga Maa, but a part of. Indulged in the cacophony of sankh and dhaki, “Durga Puja” has just not been about the religious ceremony or worshipping Durga Maa, but a bond that I have made with this city. The bond of love, warmth, culture, and celebration. Subho Mahalaya.
With the announcement of Mahalaya, the colors of the festival have been embedded and the city is already dancing to the tune of joy. Bengali or non-Bengali, Durga Puja is homecoming and I have always been welcomed to be a part of this rich tradition and culture.
Admiring landscapes of shiuli and kaash, women in Bangla red and white bordered saree, late night’s made of bhappa chingri and chicken chop, Anjali to Maa Durga, a lot of traditions and love is what the maha celebration is made of and I can’t be more excited but to be a part of.
Let’s welcome everyone and spread joy this Durga Puja. An initiative by Sugam Homes.
