This time of the year…

..when the drumbeats announce the arrival of Goddess Durga and the Bong in me gets homesick-again.

Yeah I miss the fun and those friends.
And since some moments do not come back we go forward and create new memories. This is a glimpse of the Dusshera  procession from the southern-most tip of India-Kanyakumari.

So different, and yet the enthusiasm is the same. Isn’t it?
Wishing you a great time this festival season!

  4. You have a great festive season too Reema. Love the new picture of the godess at the top of your blog. We lived in Calcutta till I was in 8th grade and I remember going to see all the pandals first with my parents and then as I got older with my friends. They were just gorgeous.---Smita
