Durga Puja Celebrations in Pune

Durga puja is one thing, every Bengali looks forward to... And I am no exception to that... This year, I had a chance to visit some of the "pujos" in Pune, and believe me, they were wonderful. Here are a couple of pics I had taken last night ("navami").

This photo was taken at Durgotsav celebrations at Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC). I remember this puja from the days I was in school way back in 90s. Combined with cultural events organized by AFMC's own students and teachers, it makes you feel at home.

After AFMC, I visited Koregaon Park. Completely covered in white, the goddess looked radiant. This pujo reminded me of the decorations in Kolkata's pujo pandals....
