Durga Puja and Bengalis date back forever. (may not be historically accurate, but you get my point 🙂 ) . There are things Bengalis do during Durga Puja, that have become one with the rituals of the Pujo itself.

For example , the red-white saree during Ashtami’s Anjali, or the Dhunuchi Naach.

Let us now look at few new-age-of-late-social-media-aftereffect Durga Puja rituals that have caught on:

Pre Durga Pujo Status update

The Bengalis in Kolkata flaunt it. They post status updates like: “ Aah my city of joy”, or “ Durga Pujo has started already..” and post clicks/selfies of the pandal decorations.

The Non-resident Bengalees are divided into two kinds:

    1. Those who are traveling to Kolkata for Durga Puja: Their emotional statuses of homecoming, flight details, etc.
    2. Those who are not fortunate enough to visit Kolkata(like me): They post status filled with nostalgia, missing pujo, enjoying the virtual pujo etc.

*It is emotional*

In most of the Bengali profiles, you will definitely see a happy family picture with Ma Durga. That will most likely be the cover pic of the fortnight.For those who think, “what is the big deal!” Well, for the Bengalis, Ma Durga is a family member. And what do you do when you meet your family after one year?! Make sense now?

This one is for the charming bong beauties. It does not matter what religious/cultural belief you resort to, Sindoor khela picture is the new “chic”. (Well Bengali Boudees are hot, no denying that! )
