Mahalaya (মহালয়া) - Durga Puja


Dear বাঙালি বন্ধুগণ :

We all know, words fail to portray and express the joy the utterance  দুর্গা পূজা bring to our lives, especially the folks who are away from কলকাতা. In a vain effort to re-live memories of মহালয়া I have put together this humble post with help of YouTube. Hope you enjoy, may it bring "home" that much closer to you. Though this effort was principally for my Mum but my friends, do close you eyes and play the video; you would be stunned by the range of thoughts and emotions in the end.


-----------------------------------------------------------

To my Non-Bengali Friends:

I am sure you have landed here as you are interested in Global Culture - we live in a melting pot - and Bengalis would love to share our biggest festival "Durga Pujo" with you.

Durga Puja (Pujo is more phonetic to the local dialect of Kolkata) is essentially a celebration of the eternal battle between Good and Evil, where mother goddess Durga triumphs over the embodiment of evil, Mahi-sha-sur. The name Mahisasura Mardini means The Annihilator of the Demon Mahisasura. In this post I'll focus on Mahalaya, the invocation of the goddess Durga. Durga is warrior icon of "Shakti" - femenine/creative power of light, to invoke her the world recites her praise verse, "Chandi Kavya". The ritual of reciting "Chandi Kavya" is called "Chandi Path". From 1930 All India Radio had aired a program called "Mahisasura Mardini" at the dawn of Mahalaya, Birendra Kishore Bhadra was the most famous orator of the Chandi Srotam. Follows an YouTube presentation of the same(I do not take credit for any content, merely aggregating it for your viewing convenience):
