Durga Puja Festivities in India This October : NabaDurga and Her eight Divine powers , based on Hindu Mythology

Across the clear blue sky drift away and away the fleecy white clouds as if fleets of sailing ships move towards an unknown destination where happiness is perpetual; where peace is eternal. Amid these gifts of nature a slight touch of the nip in the air marks the advent of autumn - the season for Indians’ one of the most popular, most loving, most caring Festivals - Durga Puja, the worship of the Mother goddess Durga. Durga Puja is celebrated with great pomp and ceremony all over West Bengal, India and in many places in five continents.

Celebration of Durga Puja is not only restricted to one or two communities but it is among all the proud Indians. Nowadays, it has become a boundless festival amongst the people of all races, colours and creeds. The familiar sound of drum (Dhak), a folk dance with burning urn-shaped earthen pots on the altar of the worshipping Hindu idols (Dhunuchi dance), and the mild fragrance of Shiuli flowers altogether give rise a familiar emotional feeling to every Indian heart as well as to those Indians who live abroad.
