Happy Diwali to all the members of BS & the Visitors.
Diwali - As we all know it's a festival of Light. In this auspisious day, we (in our family) used to celebrate Laxmi Puja every year. I know, you people might think that Laxmi Puja dates are different, they why we arrange Laxmi Puja on Diwali. Let me explain, Bengalease celebrate Laxmi Puja on 2-diffrent day. First one after Durga Puja, thats called Kojagori Laxmi Puja & the Second one on Diwali, its called ALaxmi Puja (Prayer to the bad side of laxmi for not looking on the family).
Since, this Laxmi Puja been done in the evening, I can't go outside to visit Pandals of Kali Puja. But, I have to enlight minimum of 11-Pradips (Diya) in my house. After enlighting the Pradips, I will attend the Laxi Puja of my house & then to serve the Bhog Prasad among the guests. So, in the evening time, I miss the crackers.
But, I am not going to pass Diwali so easily. Since, I live in Dakshineswar, with my friends after 11PM, I will go to Kali Temple & will spend whole night in the Temple by watching Puja & Function there. At the early morning (Nearly at 5am), we (me and my friends) will take the Bhog-Prasad from Dakshineswar Kali Temple & will return home. Then a Deeeeeep Sleep for atleast 5-6 hrs.
No Internet, No BengalSpider, No ISC - on that Day...This much thing, I have planned to do.. What about you? Please share..
