Durga pooja (worshiping of mother Durga, a Hindu mythological devi and diva) is the biggest festival of Hindu-Bengalies and it was celebrated few weeks ago. In Kolkata, India it is celebrated extravagantly every year around this time. I am "spiritual but NOT religious" and for me, it's a festival of color, friendship, good food and of course, fashion! Every year during this time I just feel so home-sick and miss my friends & family back home. This year we went to a Hindu temple, Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Nj to celebrate and of-course, I wore a saree. Here are few pictures of that day for you guys.
