Interesting Facts about Mahalaya

Subha Mahalaya!

The time has arrived again after a wait for long one year! Starting with this article I am just getting goose bumps by those nostalgic thoughts, that euphoria and warmth of family reunion. I always get mesmerized with the thoughts of Durga Puja– the autumn season, the fluffy clouds all around, the Kans grass (Kash Phool), the sunny soothing weather, just dawns the arrival of Durga Puja, Bengali’s most awaited festival. Though the preparation starts long back since last two months, but still the day of Mahalaya is just the beginning! All preparation gets finalized by the arrival of Mahalaya and only some final touch remains for Durga Puja preparation- be it for shopping, pandal erection, Idol preparation and other arrangements. 

Especially for Bengalis who stays outside West Bengal in other parts of India or abroad, definitely tries to get some arrangements done so that they can celebrate Durga Puja at their locality nearby. And if possible then they all definitely try to get back home at West Bengal for at least those four to five days. There is no other festival in India except Durga Puja, which is celebrated with such grandeur.

At the time of handing over Ahalya, Brahma told Rishi Gautama to bring her back when she turned young. Rishi Gautama took care of her, brought her up and when she turned young, he took her back to Lord Brahma. Brahma got amazed seeing Gautama’s truthfulness and solemnity. Ahalya was blessed that she will always have the body and beauty of the 16-year-old girl. All Devas and Asuras got attracted by her and wanted to possess her. Lord Brahma declared that he would marry Ahalya to one who will travel around the Earth and come back first.
