My Durga is greater than your ideology
Azure skies filled with white, fluffy, cotton candy-like clouds, 'shiuli' flowers drugging the olfactory senses, endless fields of 'kash' (kans grass) as far as the eye can see – it feels like Durga Puja by this time every year. To Calcuttans and especially Bengalis living in the state or as 'probashis' outside of it, Durga Puja means a plethora of things. During this time, migrant Bengalis, urban and rural, make that annual pilgrimage home. They meet friends and family, shop for new clothes and appliances, and make merry.
