Festival Time

Ever since we moved to Bangalore from Mumbai, Navraatri has been extra special for us. Kids have vacation during this period and I get good 15 days to visit my parents home in Mumbai.

It was fun in Mumbai with nine days of endless festivities. Time just flew by. Mornings and evenings were occupied with visits to relative's place who had kept these awesome kolu (display of dolls)  Durga pooja pandals were another major attraction, what with exhibitions and stalls put up outside the pandals, for someone like me it ensured great outings.

We worship Ma Lakshmi,Goddess Durga and Saraswati Devi during this period.
This time we went to a pandal organised by the Bengali association. The sight was beholding.
The people of  Bengal believe that Ma Durga comes back to her home after punishing the demon Mahishasur (Mahishasuramardhini) with all her children.(Ganesha, Karthikeya, Lakshmi and Saraswati.)
Thus goodness wins over evil.

Now that I am back there are many posts lined up in the weeks to follow. Coming up next, is the work of two dynamic young ladies Pooja Shah and Niharika Jilla. Let's celebrate women power in Sajavat too, taking a cue from our  festivals.

So folks, do keep visiting Sajavat  for some great insight in the world of interiors.
