Durga Puja will start from tomorrow with 'Mahalaya,' Kolkata HC strict orders

Kolkata: Durga Puja will begin in Kolkata on Wednesday (October 6) with Mahalaya Amavasya (Sarva Pitra Amavasya). It is believed that on the same day where the Shradh paksha ends with Mahalaya, Mother Durga comes from Mount Kailash and resides on the earth for the next 10 days. Durga Puja is celebrated in a grand manner all over Bengal for 10 days, but in view of the corona epidemic, as directed by the High Court, Durga puja will be held this year too with certain rules.

Kolkata Police is ready and is going to various puja pandals to check the rules. It is on the day of Mahalaya that sculptors finalise the eyes of Mother Durga. In Hindu religious scriptures, Durga Puja is on the Shukla side of the month of Ashwin. This year Sharadiya Navratri is going to be launched on October 07. Sharadiya Navratri begins on the next day of Mahalaya Amavasya.

In view of the coronavirus menace, the High Court has upheld the ban on the festival as it did last year. The court upheld last year's guidelines on Durga Puja and said that this year too the festival should be celebrated as per all covid protocols. Meanwhile, the Kolkata police, committed to implementing the directions of the high courts, has started its activities. Lalbazar police are keeping a strict vigil so that no club or puja committee violates the court order.
