“Navarathri” – In my school days, it meant lots of roaming with friends to sing, collect chundals with so much of festive atmosphere around. With a gang of nearly 10 ppl, we would go to each neighbor’s house and sing… Wow, those golden days… Unforgettable days!! Also, it would be a feast for those 10 days tasting each folks culinary tastes. This is the longest celebrated festival- “Dussehra”. In Mysore, this is one of the prominent festival celebrated in a very grand manner. Exhibitions, colors, n what not… The city would look colorful these days… Also, the great mysore palace would be illuminated with lights on all these days in the night!!!
On the other hand, in Bengal side, where they celebrate this festival as “Durga Pooja” – This is the time where the married ladies would go to their mother’s place and njoy the festival. Also, their mothers would present their daughter with saree, manjal, kumkum, bangles n lots more… The old ppl who cannot go to their mothers place, their mothers would send it through courier it seems…(Info got through a magazine
do not remember the name).. So, the people in Bengal would have a gala time during this festive period.
Here comes my small video of the golu display which i have kept at my place!!
Hope you all watch n njoy!!
