An Indian Hindu devotee looks on after performing 'Tarpan', a ritual to pay obesience to one's forefathers, on the last day for offering prayers to ancestors called 'Pitrupaksh' in Mumbai on October 15, 2011. In Hindu mythology, this day is also called 'Mahalaya' and described as the day when the gods created the ten armed goddess Durga to destroy the demon king Asura who plotted to drive out the gods from their kingdom. The five-day period of worship of Durga, who is attributed as the destroyer of evil, commences on October 20.
