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.

Mother Goddess DURGA

The principle form of the Goddess, also known as Devi and Shakti in Hinduism. Durga the mahashakti, the form and formless, is the root cause of creation, preservation and annihilation. According to legend, Durga Manifested herself for the slaying of the buffalo demon Mahisasura from Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and the lesser gods, who were otherwise powerless to overcome him. She is pure Shakti, having manifested herself within the gods so that she may fulfil the tasks of the universe via them. At times of distress, such as the mahishasura episode, to protect the universe she manifests herself via the gods.
