One of most important festive season which we all look forward to is round the corner. Tommorrow is going to be the first day of 9 day long Durga Puja. Today is the day for Mahalaya. The day for the invocation of Goddess Durga. Mahalaya marks the beginning of the festive season.
Being children, this day meant a lot for us. Listening to the program on All India Radio (AIR) in the early morning (4’oo clock) was special delight. That sure means holidays are to start.
