Durga Pooja 2014

Durga Puja is one of the most important festivals for Bengalis and each year during Navratri, it is celebrated with religious fervor across India.

Sadly this year I could only attend Durga Puja organized by Mayapuri Matri Mandir and missed out on visiting other pandals. Here are a few photographs I took on Navmi/Dashmi.

While I am sad that I couldn’t see other pandals in Delhi, it was fun visiting Mayapuri Matri Mandir Puja Pandal, especially since it wasn’t at all crowded and it is our local puja.
