It is time to welcome back Ma Durga, who is on her annual five-day visit to her father Himalaya's home, with her sons Ganesh and Kartik and daughters Saraswati and Lakshmi.
Also known as Uma and Parvati, in Hindu mythology, Durga symbolises the vindication of the good forces over the evil as she vanquished the evil Mahishasura.
But for lakhs of devotees across India, the five-day festival not only means a time of worship but also an opportunity to don new clothes, savour delectable sweets and socialise with friends and family members.
