5 Brilliant Ways To Enjoy The Kolkata Durga Puja

kolkata durga puja

For most residents of Kolkata, India, the New Year commences with a quick check of the red coloured dates that mark four days of October. It means a lot more than a span of leave from school or work. These four days of Kolkata Durga Puja usher in a tremendous joy. This feeling starts months before it actually takes place, and successfully leaves its gleeful aftertaste days after it ends with the “Bisharjan” (immersion) of the idol of Devi Durga.

Brilliant ways to enjoy the Kolkata Durga Puja:

Apart from regular pandal hopping and merrymaking, let’s see how the Puja-loving people of Kolkata enjoy themselves in the spirited Durga Puja celebration:

1. Spend high quality time with family

Amidst the hustle and bustle of city life, Durga Puja ensures some rest. It’s the time when you can hear the beats of a drum at a distance and tell your child how different Puja used to be when you were young.

2. A time to be oneself

With a 24×7 schedule, we hardly get time to spend with ourselves and more importantly be ourselves. Durga Puja is only this time of the year that we can nurture our zealous tantrums. The dormant photographer in an accountant comes to life and embarks on his journey of capturing the essence of Kolkata Durga Puja. The euphoric dancers in each one of us break free during “Dhunuchi Naach”, a dance with Indian incense burner.

3. Socialising

Friends, who perhaps live miles apart, catch up together to share the new and reminisce the old. Kolkata Durga Puja brings with it the mammoth opportunity to box up amazing memories that would suffice another hectic year.

4. Gastronomical upheavalKolkata durga puja food

Instead of the usual feast at the city’s noted restaurants, Durga Puja gives us our once-in-a-year chance to be responsibly sinful. We can indulge in a wide spread of delectable food and get a taste of the authentic Bengali cuisine.

5. Plan a quick escapade

With all the happiness Kolkata Durga Puja brings with itself, it also tags along hectic tours along the lanes of Kolkata. So, if you wish to escape from the excitement and rejuvenate yourself in tranquil joy, get yourself a ticket to the nearest tourist location. A quick tip: Daringbadi and Bangriposhi may be considered.

Kolkata Durga Puja is a serious affair of festivity and enjoyment. Besides, it also is a time when we can get all laid back and cherish the trivial moments of joy. So pull up your socks and get ready to use your Puja time brilliantly.
