If you’re lucky enough to be in India at this time of the year, you are in for a season of festivities. Navrata, Durga Puja, and Dussehra just passed by our lives and filled Delhi with a spirit of celebration. While Durga Puja is typically the main festival of Bengalis and is celebrated with much fervor in Bengal, particularly Kolkata, Delhi is not to be left far behind! In a little pocket of Delhi called Chittaranjan Park, lies a mini-Bengal itself. And last week, the place was abuzz with colorful “Pandals“, gorgeous idols of the Goddess and queues and queues of people trying to get a glimpse of her. And of course, the street food was mind boggling in its sheer variety!
Here are some pictures of the idols from in and around Delhi. Hope you enjoy them!
