This festival has lots of teaching about our life. It let us understand the power of good. Always the power of good wins over bad. People arrange their house with lighting and arts. Everything looks so much beautiful. It is a national holiday for people in India and Bangladesh.
This Puja indicates the fight against evil. People believe that the goddess will help them to stay away from the bad and negative things. We arrange a huge celebration at this festival every year. Our parents guided us to pray on this day a lot.
We go to the Mandir and pray for everyone’s good. We meet with all relatives and friends. It is time to greet each other and forget all the negative things. People get new clothes and do lots of fun activities. Kids enjoy the most in the Puja.
