Shubho Mahalaya, the fortnight of the Goddess begins!

I missed the Janmashtami greetings on 2nd September, so here it is! The day when the first layer of clay is applied on the Goddess’s frame and the day when Lord Krishna took birth.

Mahalaya is the first day of Devipaksha, fortnight of the Goddess, the day when the Goddess opens her eyes and looks at us. This ceremony is called chakshudan.

Apart from that Hindu men offer their ancestors homage on this dawn, that is called tarpan.

So in gist it is quite an important date in Hindu calendar!

Wish you all a very blessed Mahalaya and Durgapuja!

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
