Durga Puja 2009

Durga puja is in the air!
Kolkata is all dressed up and happy!

There is a lot of joy all around. KMC ia finally repairing the roads and hopefully we will all have a slighly less bumpy ride this puja!

I plan to for pandal hopping on Saptami in the wee hours of morining. Will post pics (maa durga photos) and photos of durga puja pandals here. There are many traditional households in Kolkata who celebrate Durga puja in their homes. I plan to visit some of these houses. Some of these houses have been celebrating Durga puja for over 100 years!

What I am looking forward to is the yummy bhog. It consists of ‘Khichdi’ which is usually served with mixed vegetables known as ‘labra’, chatni and pappad. The Bhog tastes out of the world!

While I go pandal hopping, check out some maa durga photos posted in the below-mentioned site-
