Durga Puja commences on 10 th October 2013
The institution of the community Durga Puja in the 18th and the 19th century Bengal contributed vigorously to the development of Hindu Bengali culture.This festival celebrates life, culture, traditions and customs.Yes, it is that time of the year again when we forget all about about our normal existence and mingle with the milieu to celebrate one weekend of Durga Puja. Legend has it that Lord Shiva permitted Goddess Durga to visit her mother for nine days in an year. Her visit to her parents is thus celebrated as Durga Puja. On the 10th day, immersion of Goddess Durga idol in River Ganges symbolizes her return to Mt. Kailash.
