AWARDS & SHAMMAN 2017
DURGA PUJA
PARIKRAMA 2017

Durga Puja or Sharadotsav is the most awaited and biggest Hindu festivals in India. It is mainly celebrated in West Bengal for six days including Mahalaya, Maha Shasthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, Maha Navami and Vijayadashami. As it is the most popular festival in West Bengal it is also known as the festival of Bengalis or Sharodiya.

This festival is celebrated all over the region especially in the eastern parts of India like West Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa and Tripura with rich culture and traditions. This festival brings life, culture and tradition amongst the people. Due to the majority of the Bengali Hindus located in the states of West Bengal and Tripura it is marked as the biggest festival of the year due to their socio-cultural event in the Bengali society.

Durga Puja is also celebrated in the states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab, Kashmir, Karnataka and Kerala as well. Every year it is celebrated between the month of September and October.

This festival is mainly commemorated and involves the shakti of power Goddess Durga which lays back to the story of the most powerful demon Mahisasur also known as the Buffalo Demon. Mahisasur got a boon from Lord Brahma that no one could defeat him and make him invincible, but once he got all the divine powers, he started severe problems by killing people and eventually wanted to fight and uproot the gods too.

Gods in dismay created a beautiful maiden with combination of their powers and placed each of them of his or her potent weapon in one of her ten hands of Durga Mata riding a lion and she killed the demon Mahisasur and won back the heaven for Gods. In the Bengali month of Aswin, it also marks her return every year remembering Lord Rama as he order Goddess Durga (who had the divine power of fighting and killing everything evil) to be present for her blessings in order to save Sita from the grasp of Ravana.

Devi Durga is worshipped in various forms in different parts of the region and the celebration of Durga Puja festivities also coincide with Navratri and Dussehra festivals.
