Delhi : Once again Maa Durga arrived to her father’s home this year. Durga Pooja celebrations started on the 13th of October 2010 i.e., Shashti. The fun and frolic of Durga Pooja remained till 17th of October followed by Vijaya Dashami. On 17th of October the idols of the goddess were immersed. In New Delhi the main attraction was Pooja Pandals of Chhitaranjan Park. The Pandals had amazing interiors with mind blowing Durga Protima’s (Idols).
The sound of ‘dhaak’ could make anyone tap his feet. The Bengali men and women were seen wearing their traditional attires ‘saari’ and ‘dhooti panjabi’. Even the little ones were seen wearing the same. The ambiance was exuberant. Many cultural programmes were organised. Renowned artists from Kolkata also performed (live) in various pandals. From Shashti to Navami ‘bhog’ was distributed in each and every pandal.
