Kolkata Durga Puja 2011 Online | Bijaya Dasami marks End of Durga Puja - Sindoor Khela & Bhashan Immersion (Photo Feature)

Calcutta, Oct 6 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / IBNS): As the night of Mahanabami faded away, the morning  of Bijaya Dasami (Vijayadashmi) makes you feel that it is time for Durga to leave earth and go back to her home in Kailash.

A tinge of sadness is in the air, but it is also the time when a yearlong wait begins for the Mother Goddess to return next year around the same time.

The week long celebration and festivity is finally going to get over today as the idol will be taken to the river Ganges and other water bodies and then immersed.

Before immersing into the water the idol is worshipped by the Bengali women with sindur (vermilion powder) - this ritual is called 'baron'.

Sweets are distributed among each other to mark the mood of festivity and the occasion.

The men greet each other with warm embraces while the juniors of the family show respect to elders by bending down to touch their feet.

As the idols are immersed into the Ganges, it will once again be a patient wait for one year till goddess Durga arrives on Earth with her children to spend five days and allow people down here to celebrate the mood of festivity.
