With every passing hour, Autumn comes near. For the large Bengali community around the world, it means only one thing. Their biggest festival, the Durga Puja, is drawing nearer and nearer. It is the time when the whole of Bengal pulsates with the unique philharmonic of conch shells, the rhythms of dhaks (drums), the "Ulu Dhyani" (tongue sounds) of Bengali women, the burning of dhoop (incense), pushpanjalis (flower offerings) and of course, the chanting of hymns and prayers. Nature seems to join into the celebration with the sunny weather, clear blue sky and gentle breeze that blows time and again. The spirit of festivity breaks loose all over Bengal and wherever Bengalis have a presence.

Check out our wide range of eCards, stories, wallpapers and recipes for Durga Puja. Also go through our informative articles on Durga Puja Aarti, Baroari Durga Puja and many more.
