the Mother Of All Festivals
Bengal is the
land of festivals. As the popular saying goes 'there are thirteen festivals
in twelve months' in Bengal. But Durgotsav in autumn is the greatest of
all. It is more than just a Hindu festival. The language, literature,
music, art and every form of cultural activities achieve their zenith each
year at this time. All people irrespective of their religious beliefs,
castes or social or economic status wait for this auspicious and the most revered of occasions to
arrive. For this millennium, Puja 99 thus assumes a very special
significance for all.
Not only for
people of the big metropolis like Calcutta and Dhaka, Durgotsav is celebrated
at every remote corner of this land and beyond - on the other side of the
seven seas wherever Bengalees live. We hope to bring the magic of Durga
Puja to our visitors in its full glory and majesty.
involvement and help, we hope to enrich our visitors' experience by
bringing to you pictures of Mundop, reports of cultural events, exchange
of greetings and by publishing visitors' own experiences this year plus
much much more. Just wait for it all!
