There is almost a month left for the biggest festival of Cuttack & Bhubaneswar,Durga Puja.The immersive experience of Durga Puja is always exciting and full of joy.
For the people of Cuttack Durga Puja is not just a 5-day extravaganza soaked in food,prayer & festivities,it is an intrinsic part of the Katki identity.So much so,that a true Katki will be able to smell Puja in the air from a month in advance or you can say from the day of Ganesh Chaturthi.Right from the 5 a.m. broadcast of Mahalaya,to the goosebumps that each beat of the Dhol (drums)sends our way,our existence in these five days becomes suffused with the Goddess herself.And as we bid the idol of Goddess Durga farewell,we shed tears,like we’re about to lose a loved one,such is our passion.The people of Katkis are emotionally attached with the film.
Not only for the katkis,the festival also celebrated in a colorful way in the capital city of Odisha.
During these 5 days of celebrations,there are many life-altering experiences,it’s really sad for a non-resident Odia to have to miss out on the real deal.We will bring closer to the Puja experience with pictures & videos of various Puja mandaps,Chadi Medha updates and colorful gates of the twincity like every year.You can browse through the pandals around the city, appreciate their stunning craftsmanship and witness the majesty of Maa Durga through your smartphone,PC and tablets.
