The last day of Durga Puja

The last day of Durga Puja holds a special significance for all the married women of the Bengali community. Before bidding adieu to the Goddess, the ladies assemble near the Idol, apply vermilion on the Goddess’s feet or forehead and then smear vermilion on each other. This is a part of the last celebration before the Goddess is taken for immersion. The married Bengali women pray for the long life of their husbands as they participate in the ‘Sindoor Khela’. The sight is just spectacular with the colour red all over the place.

‘Sindoor Khela’ will show you the true essence of the festival.
