Happy weekend - the countdown begins

The Bengalees all across the world wait for this part of the year to join into the mass festivity called Durga puja. Though it's a Hindu festival celebrating the win of good over anything evil, it crosses the religious boundary with it's universal appeal. Come join into this spirit of festivity.
Today is Mahalaya, when the Hindus offer prayer to their forefathers through some rituals, generally on the banks of river Ganga. Even if you don't understand a single word of those powerful scriptures, just be happy that Puja is only a few days away.
A group of young girls originally from West Bengal and Assam, now geographically spread across the globe, have come out with an e-magazine (follow the link). Even if you are not a bong or don't believe in Durga puja, hope you would like the visual treat.
Happy weekend. Happy Mahalaya.
