Today is ashtami, the eight day of Dasara and it is Durgashtami. Mother Durga was born on this day to drive out the evil (jealousy, anger, arrogance) from our lives. May goddess Durga bless you all with prosperity and happiness!
Durga Pojo is very popular in West Bengal. Mother Durga is bedecked and looks splendid in the various pandals (marquees) set up across the state.
