Durga Pooja is the biggest religious festival of India’s Bengali community, celebrated every year in the month of Ashwin (September-October). It is a festival in celebration of Divine Mother’s homecoming. Goddess Durga is the embodiment of power, energy, truth and purity. She represents infinite power of the Universe that preserves moral order and righteousness. Celebration of her homecoming begins days before she finally arrives in her parents’ house (the mortal world) from the abode of her spouse, Lord Shiva in Kailash. Extensive rituals mark the celebration of Durga Puja festival.
