Written by Varsha Pillai

Durga Puja festival marks the battle of goddess Durga over the evil half demon-half buffalo Mahishasura. The festival marks the victory of good over evil and also honors the female force (Shakti) in the Universe.

In West Bengal, elaborate pandals are set up in various parts of the city where beautifully crafted statues of Goddess Durga is installed. At the end of the festival, the statues are paraded through the streets, accompanied by music and dancing, and are then immersed in the water.


Every year during the festival, the capital city of Kolkata comes to a standstill to celebrate Durga Pujo.
