Durga Puja is celebrated by Hindus all over the world, but it holds special prominence in Kolkata and the Indian states of West Bengal, Assam, Tripura, Odisha, Jharkhand, the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh and the country of Bangladesh.
Durga Puja is celebrated with immense enthusiasm and grandeur in Dharmapuri. The preparations for this festival start months in advance, with communities and organizations working tirelessly to create magnificent and elaborate Pandals. These Pandals are temporary structures built to house beautifully crafted idols of Goddess Durga and her family. Celebrations also include scripture readings, performing arts (dance & plays), the exchange of gifts, visiting family members, the consumption of festive meals & sweets, and public processions.
As per Hindu scriptures, Durga Puja celebrates the victory of Goddess Durga in battle over the shape-shifting asura (or demon) Mahishasura. Thus it is also perceived as the victory of good over the forces of evil, as well as a harvest festival honoring the Goddess as the power behind all of life and creation. Worship is also extended to other deities such as the Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati, Lord Ganesha and Kartikeya.
Durga Puja is also renowned for its cultural programs and performances. Renowned artists, musicians, and performers from all over the country come to Kolkata during this time to showcase their talent.
