It's A Bittersweet Pujo This Year

So pujo is over. Ma Durga arrived timely, left timely. Another pujo has come and gone by. So many changes happen in this one year interval. New people come into our lives, so many leave as well. In my case, I have only lost people since my last pujo. This year was no exception. However, we had tremendous fun this year. Here are some moments.

Pujo was one day less this year. But that didn't affect us. We started our pujo from Panchami. We went for pandal hopping straight from office.
On Shosthi, it was a night out with colleagues. We roamed around the city of joy whole night in a car, visiting pandals. Our city does not sleep during pujo, and this year we also stayed up all night with her on that day.

On Saptami, my bff and I decided to explore north Calcutta pujo. We started from Bagbazar and ended our jaunt at Sovabazar rajbarir pujo. We both love this part of Calcutta because this is where you can still find the true essence of old Calcutta.

On Ashtami, Navami and Dashami we did not go out much. Most of the time we stayed at my friend's father's house. We spent most of the time in the complex hanging out with our gang there.

On Ashtami, I wore this beautiful turquoise blue chiffon saree that I borrowed from aunty. Blouse was mom's. Accessories were all mine.
Navami morning, we went out and got half drenched in rain in the morning. We had to cut our trip short and come back home.

I missed the vasan er nach this year because of my friend. It was her idea to spend the evening at a mall. We had early dinner there, came home and had lots of cocktail at night and went to bed all tired and tipsy. Pujo sesh.
I asked, rather begged for something from Ma Durga this year. Lets see if she thinks I'm worthy enough to find it. Till then, it's Asche bochor abar hobe.
Take care and be happy. Shubho Bijoya to everyone. :)
