Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of Sanatan Dharma followers, is starting from today Saturday. Corona restrictions remained in place last year. This year, the festival of Bengali life has returned to its glory. Find out the plans of some showbiz stars to worship
Everyone will eat and drink together: Aruna Biswas
There is no special plan for the puja this year. Will meet friends and relatives. Special items will be cooked on Dashami at home. Everyone will eat and drink together. This is the plan for now. I am usually very afraid of crowds. So you don’t see much worship in the crowd. But I visit my school Bharateshwari Homes every year to see the pooja. This time I will stay in Dhaka for worship. Puja days will be spent here with all relatives and friends. I have already given gifts to my loved ones. They also sent me gifts. Now I will ask the goddess that all people in the world will be happy. The hope is that the world will be peaceful after the darkness has passed.
The festive heat of childhood is no more: Vrindavan Das
Chanchals go to their village houses for puja. Chanchal gives us gifts. They are also given. Jagannath Hall, Dhakeswari Temple are visited. However, I am staying in Dhaka for the puja. There is work pressure. Shooting from 10th. The script has to be prepared. During school life there was 19-20 days off for worship. There was joy at that time. We had a joint family. The tailor used to come to the house. We all stood in line. The tailor used a tape measure to measure everyone’s clothes. It was like a festival. Then one day our guardian would go to the shop and choose who should have what kind of clothes and what color. All my brothers and sisters used to wear one color shirt and pants. Back then we used to say English pants. English pants were special for us. 2-3 days before the puja, he would bring the sack and throw the clothes. His name was written on his clothes. Many times I was upset if I didn’t like the clothes. Mom was upset. I was his only son. Why is his son’s clothes the same as everyone else’s? His favorite color may not be. The festive heat of childhood is gone. We are all expatriates in Dhaka. Meeting with relatives. That doesn’t happen here. In our village there was a big celebration on Dashami. That is, about one kilometer in the boat, thousands of people lived regardless of caste and religion. Hundreds of boats got on and everyone played drums. That fun festival is no more.
Thought not to gift anything to anyone: Manoj Pramanik
I stay at the village house every year for puja. This time will not be an exception. The first plan of the puja is to go to the village house like every time. Spend time with parents, relatives, siblings. Apart from this, new plans have been added. Now the cinema halls in my area i.e. Naogaon Rajshahi. I will watch ‘Operation Sundarban’ with everyone there. I have received the gift of worship from many people. But this time I thought I will not give anything as a gift to anyone. This time Puja’s gift for everyone is ‘Operation Sundarban’ movie. The excitement at childhood puja festivals was extreme. The interesting thing is that the excitement of the festival is still there. One of my brothers was saying that he can’t come to Pooja for work. I told him to come anyway with leave. Because when we three brothers go to the village and are united at the time of worship, nothing else is needed. It is wrong to say brother, we can say three friends. I still do what I used to do when we were young. Playing cricket together, eating and drinking, roaming around. Everything is as fun as ever. And the goddess is asked for the well-being of all the people of the world. She is the Goddess of Mars. May everyone rest in peace, including me. May I do better in the work I am doing.
Puja will be held in Dhaka and Mymensingh: Jyotika Jyoti
I will visit the idol with my relatives and family members for puja. I have seen these idols in Kolkata. Tagore can be seen there from Mahalaya. Now I will see pooja in some pavilions in Dhaka. Then I will go to see Mymensingh puja. All in all, the puja days will be in Dhaka and Mymensingh. Many family members and relatives have given gifts on the occasion of Puja. I have always loved giving gifts. I also received gifts from many people. Relatives in Calcutta gave many gifts. This year, I will ask the goddess to bring peace to the world.
May the people close to me be healthy: Urmila Sravanti Kar
Now there is no joy in worship as before. And in the month of October my father died, since then the joy of puja is gone. The situation is worse now that my only brother, an army officer, is in Mali on a UN mission. So there is only mother, me and my brother’s wife at home. I will stay in the country for worship, I can go to my brother’s in-law’s house for a little visit, I can go to Chittagong one day. There is a plan to go to India with mother after the puja. Among the puja gifts, the gift that the parents gave together was very special. Now the father is gone, but the mother buys gifts for everyone in this sick body, does shopping. I got many saree gifts from my mother. I also bought clothes for mom. Mom, I, my brother’s wife took the same saree. Finished shopping. And sending gifts to loved ones, what else are they going on about? May the wishes of Mother Durga remain, that my near and dear ones be healthy, nothing more.
I will visit Calcutta: Shipan Mitra
Will be busy till Saptami day. I will give time to family and friends on Ashtami. I will go to Calcutta on Navami. I will spend Navami and Dashami with relatives and friends there. I will visit puja mandap in different places of Dhaka. Besides, Puja will be seen in different places of Kolkata. Every year my family and relatives give me gifts. This time too. I gave gifts to the children. Besides, I gave gifts to other family members, friends, relatives. I will ask the goddess this year, that there will never be another epidemic in the world. May all the people in the world be healthy all the time. May the goddess keep everyone healthy.
