Durga Puja 2023 Dates

Bengali Festival Calendar 2019

There is a saying in Bengali that Bengalis have “Baro Mashe Tero Parbon” which literally translated in English means that Bangalees celebrate thirteen festivals in twelve months.

Indeed, Bangalees love to enjoy festivals, wherever they are – in West Bengal, Tripura and other places in India or outside India. For Bengalis, unlike many other communities of India, festival has a different meaning. It is religion, festivity, carnival and enjoyment, all rolled into one. Bengalis are perhaps the only community who has the custom of community worship (Barowari Puja).

Of all Bengali festivals, obviously Durga Puja is the foremost and biggest. There is now a big entertainment industry growing around Durga Puja with big budget theme pujas, cultural fest, beauty contests, food festivals as accessories.
