170 Words Durga Puja Essay In English

Durga Puja is the most important festival of the Bengali Hindu. It may rightly be called the national festival of the Hindus of Bengal.

Durga Puja is performed twice in the year. Once in spring, known as the Basanti Puja, again in Autumn, known as the Saradoya Puja. The Autumnal Puja is more common than the other. Spring marks the end of the winter season at that time.

The sky is clear of mists. There are new flowers that spread a sweet smell in the air, birds go on singing songs of Joy.

We look upon Durga as the Supreme Power, the creator, protector, and destroyer of the universe. She has immense power. She can give whatever we desire. So we worship her and beg her to give us what we need.

It is said that the autumnal Puja was first celebrated by Sri Ramchandra when he was at war with Ravana and the Basanti Puja was celebrated by people because on this day Durga killed a dangerous giant named Mahishasur.
