But Durga puja is supposed to be starting tomorrow.

Its the last day of Shraad today.

Happy Durga Puja in advance, though
Gurga Puja will actually start from Shashti [means 6th day] starting 19th Oct Monday for 5 days... It end on Dashami [means 10th] ... the countdown has started from today 12th Oct...

Incidentally Dashami the day we immerse Ma Durga happens to be Dusherrah in North India...

Thanks for the correction.

Here in Delhi NCR there is a fairly big Bangla community. And Durga Puja and Navratri for some of us become confusing. Navratri are to start tomorrow. You are right about Durga Puja. I have had some education in those Bengali schools so I get even more confused. :biggrin2:

Welcome... Bro

I have stayed for some time in NCR... 1.5 years in Gurgaon and 2 years in Noida...

If I am not wrong Navaratri is 9th Day / night from what we call Mahalaya starting today...

On 10th Day also called Dusherrah or Dashami when we immerse Ma Durga... falls on same day usually... It is all same just we call by different names...

WOW @Peter wishes Hindu festival.:rofl:

Happy subho mahalaya guys.

BTW I don't like Hindu goddess they are cruel.There temples are previously famous for Bali/sacrifice. Even few rural areas are still sacrifice animals for their village goddess.

Wait Goddess,female deity,Sacrifice,blood & murders !! No doubt Hindu's recognized women's TRUE COLOR/nature 1000 years before. :pound:
Actually my real name is Pratik Maitra. I just like the avatar name Peter because of my fascination with a Russian Tsar of the same name.

Durga Puja is usually celebrated from Panchami/Sasthi in Bengal. It ends on Dashami. This time Navami/Dashami falls on the same day.
