If you are one of those who doesn’t mind walking an extra mile for the best kathi roll, or can sleep like a child with the dhak sounding next to your ear — in short, be a Calcuttan for a few days — pack your bags and head to the City of Joy for an immersive experience that Durga Puja truly is.
Beat of the dhak mixed with the cacophony of traffic, I realised Kolkata’s Durga Puja is much more than just worshipping the Goddess. It’s a celebration of life, and art. Do not miss the Puja bhog — an offering of khichuri (made of rice, pulses and spices) and mixed vegetables, at the pandals.On the last day of Durga Puja, the idol is immersed in the river. This day is celebrated as Vijaya Dashmi and the married women across Kolkata smear ‘sindoor’ on each other.

From devotees to not-so-religious people, everyone loves to venture out in the streets of Kolkata to enjoy at this time of the year.
