You probably don’t know this, but Mister is a Bong, and Durga Puja is the only festival that really matters to him. For my non-Indian friends, here’s a brief description of what the festival entails – new clothes, worship, beautiful pandals that depict the goddess Durga’s victory over Mahishasur, the buffalow-demon; and (mostly non-vegetarian) food and Bengali sweets.
We were off all of last week (which also explains my recent inactivity on the blog) and were out pandaal hopping across the city.
I have so much to say about the whole experience but I guess that’ll have to wait another day!
For now, I have to show you the most beautiful pandaal I saw – the one at Minto Road. I started by clicking pictures but then decided to go with a v-log instead, just as an experiment. I hope you like it, but if you don’t, let me know and I’ll stop with the torture.
