1. Taniya Kundu

    Beautifully scripted and a very interesting read with splatters of humour. 🙂
    My family is purely “ghoti” from both sides but there is a difference in customs, my mother’s side has all the “Bhoot Chaturdashi” and “Kali Puja” rituals to the word, and my father’s side has “Dipanwita Lakshmi Puja” and “Alokkhi Bidaye” rituals during Diwali…so we celebrate both at this time of the year. I think the best thing about our festivals is the acculturation taking place between various factions of the Bengali community. This diversifies and adds more colour to our festivities.
