A wonderful post reblogged to complement my post titled, “The Festive Season“.

Durga Puja is an annual Hindu festival that celebrates worship of the Hindu goddess Durga. The festival marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the evil demon Mahisasura. Along with a few other Indian states where it is widely celebrated, in Assam too it is a five day annual holiday.
