Hi guys you all are non ndians....What do think of the festival we have here known as Durga Puja or Dusshera? Have you ever heard about it? We pray a goddess named Durga who is believed to be returning home to her human father for 10 days with her children..and we humans rejoice the return of our daughter..Well this was the History But in present days what is fun is buying new clothes,long festival holiday,All time music(Dhak-kind of drums) on the road and then there is pandal hopping with family and friends..... Which festival do you enjoy the most?And why do you enjoy it so much? Please give bit details as I want to know about various festivals abroad...Thanx
