Durga puja 2015


It’s that time of year again, Autumn has come ( in the northern hemisphere) and with it all the joys of Navratri and Durga Puja.

Durga Puja is an annual Hindu festival, as a religious and cultural celebration among Bengalis all around the world, also known as “Sharad Utsav” The dates of Durga Puja celebrations are set according to the traditional Hindu calendar.

The festival marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. Thus, Durgapuja represents the victory of Good over Evil. It’s time to decorate home, shopping new clothes and gift for near and dear one, cooking traditional dishes and a unique thing is “Pandal hopping”.

Now if you are someone who is staying away from home at this time of the year like us, then we will invite you to join with us and celebrate the occasion by sharing your old or current DurgaPuja experience with us. And if you are someone who is not familiar with Bengali festivals and would love to know and explore a new culture, then please come and join with us to explore and be a part of our happiness!!!!

Wish you all a very Happy “Durga Puja
