Maha Saptami is followed by Durga Ashtami, Maha Navami and Bijoya Dasami. Durga Puja is a six-day festival in the eastern states of West Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Tripura, and Odisha. The idol of the Goddess is placed inside the pandal and is worshipped on all the day of Durga Puja. Food is an integral part of the celebrations during the week-long festival. It is believed that Goddess Durga visits Earth to visit her father on her journey back from Kailasha. She is accompanied by her sons Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartikeya along with Goddess Laxmi and Goddess Saraswati. As Durga Puja and Navrati celebrations have gripped, we wish all our readers Subho Maha Saptami.
