Durga Puja, the grandest and most spectacular festival of India is Bengal’s cultural Magna Carta. This festivity is so divine, joyous and fabulous that it never ceases to keep us waiting eagerly for the arrival of the Goddess.

Worshipping of the Goddess in this part of the festivity requires a grand arrangement, the festival lasting for 10 days ends with Immersion of the idols of the Goddess and her family members as a culminating ceremony. We propose this festive season as the proper time for bidding.
