Muzaffarpur, Durga Puja

Durga is the manifestation of shakti, or the power of God. The goddess takes different forms to destroy evil forces at different times. One of these was Mahishasura, a demon who was troubling Gods and those who lived in heaven. They didn’t know how to get rid of him. That’s when Goddess Durga, accompanied by her favourite animal (vahan) lion fought against Mahishasura.

Durga Puja celebrates this victory over evil. This year Durga Puja festivities begin on 26th September (Shashti) and end on 30th September( Vijaya Dashmi). In Bengal and parts of Orissa, Tripura, Bihar and Assam, Dussehra celebrations are not quite tied to the epic battle of the Ramayana unlike the other parts of the country, rather they celebrate the victory of Goddess Durga over Mahishasura.
