Durga Puja Pandals in Delhi (NCR) 2014-2015

Durga Puja is one of the most important festivals of Bengalis. The festival goes on for five days. People play dhak, dhunuchi and shiuli on that occasion. The occasion starts from Mahalaya day, the day Durga was assigned the task of eliminating evil. India is a land of multifarious cultures and traditions. Eastern India i.e. states comprising West Bengal Tripura and Assam in particular shelter the majority of the Hindu Bengalis. The Durga Puja or the Durgotsava as the Bengalis call it is the most significant festival of these vibrant people. The Durga Pooja is celebrated with abundant vigor and hullabaloo making it to be the most cherished celebration. It is celebrated all over south Asia marking the worship of the Hindu goddess Durga. During the week of Durga Puja, in the entire state of West Bengal as well as in large enclaves of Bengalis everywhere, life comes to a complete standstill.

From the books of history we come to know that tradition of Durga Puja was started in Delhi in 1910. Now, The Puja at the Kashmere Gate is the most popular in the Indian capital. The organizers of this Puja are maintaining a old tradition where the Durga idol is being taken on a bullock cart. Chittaranjan Park or CR Park of South Delhi is famous in organizing the Durga Puja with splendid looking pandal and Durga idol. People all over the city and from Gurgaon, NCR, Gaziabad, Noida, Faridabad etc. visit the Durga Mandalp during the festival.

Today, over 800 Durga Puja pandals in Delhi, with a few hundred more in Gurgaon and Noida each. By the 1970s, 40 pujas were being celebrated in Delhi, with many theater troupes performing as well. Bengali movies are screened late in the night at many New Delhi Durga Puja pandals. C.R.Park has the highest density of pujas, with nine large Durga Puja pandals and several family celebrations, and the pandals reflect many Kolkata trends. Durga Puja at the New Delhi Kalibari and Chittaranjan Park Kali Mandir are held in a very traditional manner, following all rituals. Many of the older pujas of Delhi also maintain a traditional style; the one in Kashmiri gate going to bisarjan in a bullock cart as in the days of yore. Factionalism has also led to opposition, and in 2011, a puja group had to shift a C.R.Park Durga Puja venue after being opposed by nearby residents.
