~ Durga... @ International Women's Day ~
Durga is the name of a goddess. Meaning is "the inaccessible" or "the invincible"; durga is the most popular incarnation of Devi and one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti in the Hindu pantheon.
Durga Puja festival marks
the victory of Goddess
Durga over the evil buffalo
demon Mahishasura. Thus, Durga Puja festival epitomises the victory of
Good over Evil.
These days when ladies are feeling insecured worldwide, I think every lady should keep alive their inner 'Durga' to prevent all kinds of devil attitude, which they have to face everyday. Hope they will resist the torture on their female existance herself...
I use this photo (captured in a stage show held on the day of Durga puja) here on the very day, known as 'International Women's Day'...

Fantastic shot as dedication for IWD. I have pity on the 'asura' here :-) The helpless chap has been attacked from all sides, nowhere to hide :-) I like the message and symbolism of your photo, specially when we hear graphic incidents of violent crimes against women so often nowadays. Excellent colourful shot, khub bhalo hoyeche. Thanks for sharing.

I like the angle through which you have taken the picture. The colours and contrast is very good. Well acted play by the children.
Thanks for sharing.

Impressive timely shot from low pov giving us diff perspective. Besides the obvious cultural and religious aspects, it does have impact full of dynamism and there is a hidden energy feel coming across bundled by stunning colours and the look of concentration as they fully immerse in the process. You've excellently seized the right opportunity, well detailed, great clarity and exposure. Wonderful shot, TFS

a very attractive picture, full of brilliant colours and sense of movement. I like your upward point of view that fills the frame. Each child has a different costume and posture, they are all lovely and their expressions are as serious as that of the goddess in the poster behind them. You captured the scene that recreates the legend with remarkable sharpness and wonderful lighting. I also liked what you mentioned in your note about women's "inner Durga". Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
