At last the waiting is going to be over. The Pujas have come and Ma Durga will be among us within a short time. The pandals are being given the final touches to get the best look along with Ma Durga and her children – daughters Laxmi and Saraswati and sons Kartik and Ganesh. The Lion she rides cannot be forgotten nor the Mahisashur (the Demon) who is defeated at her feet with the help of her Trident.
The year 2009 Durga Puja rituals and celebrations begin on September 24.
A glimpse at the dates of the 5 Puja days:
Sashti – September 24
Maha Saptami – September 25
