Photographer's Note

Durga Puja, the most happening festival of the Bengalis can be sensed with its spurt of fanfare on all the five days of the festival. This autumnal festival recalls the power of female (Matri) Shakti (Power) symbolized by the Goddess Durga who slays asura (evil) to reestablish peace and sanctity on earth again.

Bengalis all over the world during these days of Durga Puja rejoice to their heart's content reconnecting with friends and relatives. Durga Puja is an occasion when the familiar sound of Dhak, Dhunuchi nachh,the mild fragrance of Shiuli, gives a familiar tug to every Bengali heart.

This picture is of the famous DHUNUCHI NACH (Dhunuchi Dance) performed by a lady in front of the goddess on the Maha Aastami evening.
