Choicest wishes are sent to my loved ones,
On this special day of Durga Puja;
May Maa Durga illuminate your life
With her blessings and bliss;
May she forever guide your path
Leading to success and glory.
Invoking goddess Durga on earth, Kolkata observed Mahalaya with devotional songs, scriptural recitations and prayers as greetings on social media enlivened a rainy day. Meanwhile, around 300 people came together to create the longest ‘alpana’ or ‘rangoli’ on 1.4 km stretch of Lake Road in South Kolkata.
