The festival represents female power as ‘Shakti’ in the Universe. It is a festival of Good over Evil. Durga Puja is one of the greatest festivals of India. In addition to being a festival for the Hindus, it is also time for a reunion of family and friends, and a ceremony of cultural values and customs. Our Culture -“DuggaDugga  “echo the united voices of all the ladies in the household as they move towards the pandals for  puja , wishing for a safe journey ahead in life. The sound of intense beats coming from the dhak mixed with the aroma of the  dhunuchi  lit in every house, park or corner fills the streets of Kolkata. Clad in the most beautiful attires, adorning the heaviest of jewels and thickest of bangles with  sindoor  and  bindis  on their temple, the women seem to walk a step ahead of the men today.
