Photographer's Note

This is a reflection of of durga in the holy water of Mahasnan(holy bath).A pot full of water,placed in front of durga.People used look into the water to see reflection of her feet in this water.This was taken today at Sovabazar Rajbari.

When you are going to say or write something about Rajbari pujo, it seems like to be on the sea. The vast courageous history beckons from the past. One of the family members revealed the past that Raja Nava Krishna Deb started durga Puja in 1757 and in this durga puja 2010, Sobhabajar Rajbari is celebrating their 254th year.

The family members have maintaining their primitive customs. The structure is worshipped on the day of Rathajatra. The ritual of Bodhan is done on the eve of Krishnanabami. Bed path and Madhusudan Naamjap are performed for 15 long days. On the day of immersion, Durga maa is carried on shoulder to the Ganga River.

May the divine blessings of Goddess Durga help you achieve success in whatever you do....Happy Vijayadashami!!
