Bengali’s Durga Pujo
Debarati Chakraborty, INN/Kolkata, @Infodeaofficial
The entire year, especially we Bengalis wait for this one occasion called Durga Pujo. The preparation starts a long time back like shopping , planning with friends where all to go for pandal hopping and which day what to wear along with our friends so that we all look in sync and look like a clan.
In most of the parts of India people celebrate all these nine days as Navratri, were most of them eat vegetarian food but for us,” Bengalis” we literally can’t wait to pounce on those chicken/egg rolls, kababs and all sort of non-vegetarian stuffs available.
Durga Puja, also known as Durgotsava, is an annual Hindu festival in the Indian subcontinent. It is particularly popular in West Bengal, Assam,Tripura , Bihar, Odisha,Jharkhand and Bangladesh.
