Just like the ocean is incomplete without water, Similarly what is Kolkata without its Durga Puja ?
Durga Puja is the biggest, most auspicious and the most awaited religious festival for Bengalis.
Its the time of the year when the whole of West Bengal comes to a stand still and celebrates the homecoming of goddess Durga.
This is the time for prayers, great food, and pandal-hopping with friends and loved ones.🙈❤️
Divine Mother of All there is, whose essence Lies within us all and in all things. Please fill this place with your sacred light and presence. Please protect me and heal me. Please bring me to wholeness and wisdom. Make this a day of fresh starts, new beginnings. Melt all obstacles in my path--gently, gracefully, lovingly. Reconnect me to my highest self. Awaken me to what I need to know next. Let my higher self select and connect with the divine energy that is right for me, right now. May I be uplifted and empowered by your love . So be it and so it is.
