How do I celebrate Dushehra at home

Happy and a very prosperous Dushehra to all my readers. It is our one of the main festivals; the symbol of the good winning over the bad; the rise of the god over the evil. It holds a very special place for Indians as this festival is commemorated for the Goddess Durga. That is why it is also known as Durga Puja (The worship of the goddess Durga).

                                                     

This day usually we cook delicacies and go out in the evening to meet and greet our friends and relatives. We share sweets. Then we all head towards numerous Puja pandals (stalls) where the idols of the goddess Durga are established. In those stalls, above (in the picture) or similar to this idols can be found easily. We go there, perform the worship and finally get Prasaad (offerings). We all enjoy those delicious Prasaads. There is always a lot of gung ho on this auspicious occasion.

There are also lots of article stalls on the roadsides. Different kind of items like toys, vessels, idols etc. can be retrieved. It is all fun. We wander for a long time through out our area and get to see so many pandals and sometimes, we run into some of our friends along the way. This doubles up the festival zeal. Then we get back to our house for the dinner and enjoy the scrumptious meal.

And finally arrives the most awaited part of this festival. When we get money from our father and uncles as festival gift. We always shout 'Uncle! You have given her more. Give me too the same' or 'Yayy! I got more than you'. These cheerful cries can happen only if you are blessed with a family. So make sure, you celebrate not only Dushehra but every other festival with your loved ones so that the fun, zeal and the merriment can be increased by manifolds.
