What is Durga Puja to a Bengali? Is it just festivities and rituals and hanging out with friends? Or is it pandal-hopping and good food and ‘adda’? True, it includes all of this but in reality it is much much more. The essence of Durga Puja cannot be explained to the people who have not had an experience of witnessing this festival. It is not just restricted to Bengalis but anyone who has lived in Bengal and has witnessed this grand affair of 5 days. During this time new relationships are built, older ones rekindles and broken ones mended. It is when all sorrows are forgotten and people look at life in a positive way all over again.

This short film on Durga Puja by Emami Healthy&Tasty catches the essence of Durga Puja in a brilliant way. It is about finding your roots, it is about finding who you are and where you belong. It is what Durga Puja is all about.
