Debi Boron @ Da Bari, Kolkata

[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] The Durga Puja spans over a period of ten days in case of traditional and household Pujas, though the main part of it is restricted to four days only. The main Puja, however, starts on the evening of 'Sasthi', the sixth day after the new moon, generally from beneath a 'Bel' tree for the traditional ones. In the wee hours of 'Saptami,' the next day, the 'Pran' or life of the Devi is brought from a nearby pond or river in a banana tree and established inside the image. The main puja starts thereafter and the prime time is reached in the 'Sandhikshan,' the crossover time between Ashtami and Navami. Finally, on 'Dashami,' the tenth day from the new moon, the image is immersed in a pond or river. On final day of the Pujo, Dashami, there are elaborate rituals to be performed to bid her farewell before the idol is taken for immersion... 'debi boron' refers to the rituals. Durga Puja or Durga Pujo the way we Bengalis prefer to pronounce it is the most important and essential part of Bengali Culture.
