Celebrate- Your Fun Festival Handbook Series- Dussehra & Durga Puja

Launched on the occasion of Dussehra, this handbook brings in the festivities with interesting stories and fun things to do during Dussehra.
The first section contains Durg Puja based stories – Starting from intrigue- the case of the stolen necklace.
Tuli has a fascinating experience during Durga Puja- she has an encounter with her very own Ma Durga.
I particularly liked the story of 8 brothers is based on a folk tale from Bengal, retold in a storytelling format where the listener develops the story in her mind parallely based on her imagination.
In the section- All About Dussehra & Durga Puja- we read through a delightful collection of myths about Durga puja festival including the nine forms of the Goddess, which was very enlightening for me, and the slaying of Mahishasur of course.
We had the bitter sweet story of the Goddess or the daughter coming home for Durga puja and the enlightening – getting to know the Goddess.
The handbook ends with the section of various recipes and craft related to the Durga Puja festival.
