Human beings chameleon-ize themselves better than any other creatures around… adjustment is like in our blood along with RBCs and WBCs…
Back in Kolkata, the month of October was the most coveted month… I used to linger for these days the whole year.. wandering in the jam-packed lanes, elucidated with arty light works with my brothers and sisters, stopping at every fast-food joint to have another round of “Fuchkas”(that’s what we call paanipuri).. appreciating the bravura of Pandals and the flamboyant Pratimas(idols) and whatnot, the hours passed unseen.. flouting the challenges posed by the drawn out holiday homework, I used to get imbued.
in the entire holy atmosphere..
The times have changed.. I’ve been planted to such a place where it’s not only difficult to find a Puja Pandal but even thorny to sense the ambiance.. But still.. The advent of Durga Puja takes me to a higher state.. I still feel the ting in my nerves when I think of it.. Perhaps that’s the reason why m able to stay happy even after knowing that I’ll have to attend regular classes.. perhaps I’ve attuned myself.. Perhaps not..
Well.. as this is going nowhere.. Lemme end this with the purpose of starting it..
…WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS DURGA-PUJA…
