The second half of the year is usually more a festive period than the first for Indians as multiple festivals are celebrated across the country towards the end of the year. Starting off with Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi, the citizens of the country have Dusshera and Diwali following, both of which are considered the most important festivals for Indians. Starting off with the period of Navratri, the tenth day, Dusshera was celebrated throughout the country yesterday. As a part of the festival, Bengalis celebrate the Durga Puja to worship goddess Durga.
