Photographer's Note

'Durga-Puja' is celebrated mainly by the Bengali community in India. It is a celebration of victory of good over bad. Durga (the invincible and the mother of all) is worshiped for five long days before the idols are immersed. During "aarti" (prayer ritual) the people dance with 'dhunuchi' (earthen pot filled with charcoal and raisin based incense) on the beats of 'dhaks' (bengali drums).
