Indian Festival of Durga Puja — Maha Sasthi

Durga Puja is one of the biggest Hindu festivals in India that is celebrated with great enthusiasm and grandeur. Durga Puja is also known as Durgotsava and Sharadotsava. Durga Puja is particularly a significant festival of West Bengal. For Bengalis, it is a five days long festival celebration which is been observed as Sasthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, Maha Navami and Vijayadasami. The festival begins on Sasthi and ends on Dasami when the idol of goddess Durga is immersed into the rivers or any other water bodies.

Festival of Durga Puja epitomises the triumph of Good (goddess Durga) over Evil (Mahisasura the demon). It is a worship of power of good which always wins over the evil.

In 2017, Durga Puja dates are September 26 to September 30.
The Grand immersion of Durga idols happens on September 30, 2017.
Another notable date, before the start of Durga Puja, is Mahalaya. On this day, Goddess Durga is invited to come to the earth. In 2017, it falls on September 19.

The Goddess Durga arrives on the Earth on the first day of Devi Paksha which starts on the next day of Mahalaya Amavasya during Pitru Paksha. She departs on Durga Visarjan day. The weekdays when she arrives and departs are significant and considered as omen of coming time.
