Durga Puja 2006

This year the annual Kallol experience was a little different from the usual - for one, our group was 8-people-strong (Jethun, Mamoni, Chhordibhai, Yash, Dilip, Smita, and the two of us), the largest yet. Plus, this was the first time we were there on a Sunday (instead of a Saturday) - which meant we were attending a slightly different part of the festivities. Saturday marks the celebration of "Saptami" and "Ashtami", while Sunday is "Nobomi" and "Doshomi". Saturday is for goat meat curry and skits, while Sunday is for "Dhunichi Naach"- dancing with the smouldering fire, bhog and simpler children's plays.
