As Per Wikipedia, Durga Puja, also called Durgotsava, is an annual Hindu festival in the Indian subcontinent that reveres the goddess Durga. Durga Puja is believed to be the greatest festival of the Bengali People.
But In reality Durga Puja is the biggest and most widely celebrated festival of West Bengal. They are held over a five-day period. The entire city is decked up with festive lights everywhere, loudspeakers play popular songs as well as recitation of mantras by priests, thousands of beautiful pandals are erected by communities in cities, towns and villages across the state, but particularly in Kolkata. The roads become overcrowded with hundreds of thousands of revellers, devotees and pandal-hoppers visiting the pandals on Puja days. Shops, eateries, restaurants stay open all night; fairs are set up and cultural programmes are held. Durga Puja has turned into a social carnival, biggest public spectacle and major art event, comparable with biggest festivals like Rio Carnival or similar.
New clothes are the traditional gift, and people wear them to go out together to visit countless Puja pandals. Some people go to the places of tourist attractions during the Puja holidays, while others return home from their workplaces to spend the festive days with their family members.
On the day of Vijayadashami, the idols are carried out in grand immersion processions across Bengal and then the idols are ritually immersed into the rivers or waterbodies amid singing, water-throwing and fireworks. The immersion ceremony continues till a couple of days after. Thousands Of Locals, Tourists from other states, Foreigners gather on the banks of River Hoogly to witness the spectacle.
