Durga Pooja Preparations

 

Durga Pooja Preparations especially in West Bengal starts two months before.  People generally go for shopping of new clothes and also try to chalk out a programme for spending the five days along with family and friends.  The programme so design will help for  keeping the memories of Durga Puja alive.  The happiness and the joy fills the whole environment.  

The Artisans (who generally make idol of Goddess Durga, Kumar Toli) started the work very efficiently before one month of puja.  The following few poetic lines describes the environment of puja itself:

Kumar Toli

Majestic are you hands
Brilliance of mind
Work

Day and Night
Bring life with shine.

Mix clay & colours
Smile on face
Full concentration
Excellent devotion

Majestic are you hands
Brilliance of mind
Work Day and Night
Bring life with shine.


Mahalaya

Offer tributes
Let them bless us
It’s always good

Do perform tarpan
With water & black til
Elders wait for this day
Remember us this day
