DurgapujaDurga Puja, the main festival of Bengalis is celebrated with much fanfare and alacrity. In Digha, this five day festival is a big thing and preparations begin more than a month before. This autumnal festival recalls the power of female Shakti symbolized by Goddess Durga who slays 'Asura' to re-establish peace and sanctity on earth again.
Enjoy the familiar sound of 'Dhak', 'Dhunuchi', 'nachh', 'shonkho' and revel in the mild fragrance of the 'Shiuli' flower during this time. People flock the streets in their newest clothes and there are lights everywhere. Kali Puja, Manosha Puja, Poila Boishak (Bengali New Year), Jhulon are some of the other festivals celebrated in Digha.
