Photographer's Note

" Dashami is the day when Goddess Durga accompanied with her children sets for Kailash, her husband's abode. With a heavy heart the Bengalis immerse the clay idol of Durga in the sacred Ganges bidding her goodbye and earnestly waiting to see her again the next year. "Sindur Khela" (Vermillion game)- is a major event of Dashami. Married women apply vermilion to each other and greet each other with sweets. It is in the evening when Goddess Durga is immersed Bengalis greet each other with bijoya greetings and men follow the customary 'Kolakuli' (embrace each other). Durga Puja is a festival, Bengalis celebrate without religious inhibitions. It is more of a socio- cultural celebration that tends to renew kinship with friends and relatives. "

This Picture was taken by me at Baghbazar on Dashami. I captured this face because I found it the lady was newly married ( I thought ) and was dressed in a so traditional way. I like her smiling also..

Hope on TE, I can give the bit of glimpse of real traditional image of beautiful Lady..
