The ritual of Devi Baran and Sindur Khela, is an integral part of Bengali life during Durgapujas.
On the Dashami (the final day of Durgapuja), prior to the idol of Mother Godess is immersed in water, married women take part in the Baran whereby they pray to the Goddess with vermilion, betel leaf, sweets to bid farewell to the Godess. This is the ritual of Devi Baran. Before idols are being taken away for immersion, Sindur (vermillion) is applied to the parting in the hair by married women among themselves as a part of Sidur Khela.
The significance is that the ladies who take part in this ritual are praying to Maa Durga for the longevity of their spouses, peace & prosperity of their family.
