Kajol, all pristine in white, visited the North Bombay Sarvajanik Puja (in it’s 65th year, one of the oldest pandals in Mumbai.) Kajol looked like she was reliving her childhood and seemed all sweet and happy *awww*

What is Durga Puja?

It is one of India’s most famous festivals. Legend has it that “Asuras” or demons from the underworld invaded the heavens after one hundred years of war with the gods. The Hindu trinity of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu created Goddess Durga, the most powerful of all gods and goddesses to vanquish the demons, hence the term ‘Durga Puja’ which means worshipping the Goddess. It is believed that the Goddess makes her annual visit to the world and the festivities are meant to welcome her. On this occasion, homes are re-painted and decorated to ‘receive’ the goddess. Small idols of the goddess are also installed to worship her. The festival culminates with the immersion of the ‘Durga’ idols into water bodies (just like on Ganpati.)
