How do you feel after the festival?
Do you experience post-festival blues?! Share your experiences after the exuberant joy of a festival, about whether you feel in low spirits and sad or in a way glad it is over.
Durga Puja, the grandest festival of Bengalis, is over. Vijaya Dashami was celebrated the day before yesterday. We wished each other on Vijaya Dashami. We sought blessings from our elders and have blessed the younger ones.
Now, suddenly there is a void after this four-day long celebration. The autumn has arrived. The white clouds are still there. We can still enjoy the 'shiuli' flowers in the morning. The breeze is pleasant. But we don't find that much pleasure which we used to get even five days ago. Young children have started asking the same old question: "When will the Puja come?", although they know the answer. Mother Durga will again arrive after one year.
