As much as it is celebrated in the state of West Bangel, so is it is in Assam. Durga Puja forms an integral part of the annual calender of festivities. Just like Bihu there is a certain charm in the air. the worship of Maa Durga coupled with with good food and new clothes brings in a lot of fun and happiness. The city of Guwahati is flooded with an indomitable number of puja pandals that people go to seek Maa Durga”s blessings.
In fact I can vouch for every Assamese across the globe that they would make it a point to visit at least one Durga Puja Pandal whichever city they reside in be in India or abroad. My cousins are regulars at some of the Durga Puja functions in US. So is the case with me.I never fail to visit the numerous durga puja pandals in Mumbai
