I am a Bengali working in a mining project in Chhattisgarh for the last 6 years. And in these 6 years, I have been home only 2 times during the Durga Puja.
If you are here, you won’t feel the Puja is ongoing! Most people celebrate Dusshera but the charm of Durga Puja is not there.
I have had a blunt feeling during these years when I’m here. It’s a NUMB like situation where you don’t feel the craze. But somewhere, deep in my heart, I do miss my home.
