During the Durga Ashtami celebrations in Kolkata, people perform Sandhi Puja, which takes place in the Sandhi Time falling in the last 24 mins of Ashtami tithi and the first 24 mins of Navami tithi. Sandhi time is believed to be the most auspicious time (shubh muhurat) during entire Durga Puja or Durgotsav. Balidan, meaning sacrifice is also held on Ashtami. While animal sacrifice is done at few places on Navami, devotees perform the balidan ritual by chopping fruit or vegetable, mostly pumpkin. This ritual signifies a person getting rid of their negative traits. Kumari Puja, another important ritual during Navratri also takes place on Durga Ashtami.
