The Ashwin month, which runs from September through October, is when Durga Puja is celebrated. The event, which lasts for nine days, is observed with great fervour and veneration for the warrior goddess Durga. As Shakti’s feminine manifestation, Durga is highly worshipped. The Sanskrit term for strength is “Shakti.” As a result, the purpose of Durga Puja is to honour Mother Durga and pray for her protection and valour.Shaktism is a centuries-old Hindu practise that honours the feminine aspect of the goddess Shakti. Only the armies and warriors who had to engage in combat would perform the tradition in antiquity.
Keeping in mind this antiquity, Dibrugah 24×7 is serving the people in whichever way they can. The #JanataJanardhanDiaries’ next stop is a small but remarkable puja pandal in Dibrugarh. This particular area and their localities, through their creativity, have always set a bar for low budgets Yes, you read that correctly: Subash Pally Sarbajani Bhubaneswari Kali Mandir Puja Committee.
Their puja is 50 years old, having started in 1986 , which signifies that this year they will be celebrating their Golden Jubilee. Their theme is Time. There is a very famous saying, “Time and tide wait for none“. Time is very important to one and all. We should always understand the value of time because it waits for us alone. Time has a great impact on our lives as well. The passing of time is understood with age.
The construction of Pandal is purely done with biodegradable items, which are of potato sacks. They are organic and eco-friendly. While talking to us, the committee member said, “The main reason we took the potato sacks while building our pandals is because we should focus on 3Rs and about time. It is like we want to give a gentle reminder to people that if it’s meant to be, it will happen now or else when it is meant to be, it will happen then.”
