Durga Puja

Durga Puja is not only a Festival- It is about Celebrating Life

Kumartuli visit, Mahalayar Agomoni, Dhaaker Taal, Dhunuchi Dance, Shondhay Arati, Astami Pushpanjali, Sindur Khela and then Devi’s Biday bela . All this may sound just a ritual but there is a gamut of human emotions which flows immensely on those 5 days of celebration. Where the heart rejoices to every tune of Dhaak, as the Devi is greeted with affection in the form of love by her devotees. Durga Puja is indeed a celebration of life. – From the heart of a Bengali.

SANDAKPHU DIARIES

It’s been a journey which was all about learning, realization and testing my potential. I came out of my comfort zone and lived my days out of my backpack, made friends, talked to locals, to understand the hardship, to appreciate each smaller little things which may seems very little but has a deeper meaning. I felt extremely content to have been able to ticked off one more wish out of my bucket list.  I now look at it, I realized that journeys are actually way more important than the destination. What I said not because I could not witness any stunning view at the top. But it is because, I trekked for 5 days covering about 45 kms chasing something which I could not get the view of. Still I feel that I could achieve the inner joy of finding my new love for mountains. I think I m just hooked on to this and I will definitely going to take up many more treks.
