Durga Puja is celebrated with joy
all over India, especially West Bengal in worship of Goddess Durga.
Singing, dancing, sweets & fun are an essential part of the Durga Pooja
Festival. People send Durga Puja Gifts to dear ones and express good
wishes. Goddess Durga, highly revered by the Hindus, is a fierce yet
benign multi-armed warrior-mother-protector goddess. Goddess Durga the
form of Shakti, the cosmic energy that animates all beings, is
worshipped to bestow all men with auspiciousness and prosperity. Durga
Puja is also known as 'Akalbodhan', 'Vijaya Dashami'. Apart from being a
festival, Durga Pooja has become a social-cultural event that, like
other festivals of India, re-energizes the concept of the victory of
good over evil.
