Banglahant Desk: Today is Maha Navami, on the ninth night the mind becomes burdened. The time of mother's departure is approaching. After waiting for mother for a long year, mother Uma came but everyone was overwhelmed when she left. But this year everything seems to be different. Although Pujo, the epidemic Corona virus has greatly diminished that joy of Pujo.
Ninth date- The ninth date of this year starts on Saturday, October 24 at 11:22 AM and lasts till 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 25 at 11:00 AM.
Ninth means that the mind is full of sadness, that is, everyone's mind becomes burdened. The farewell tune of the mother seems to make the mind of the Bengali heavy at every moment.
On this day, it is customary to offer sacrifices through home sacrifices. Anjali is also offered on this day along with various rituals. Rice pumpkin sacrifice is a special ritual, which is celebrated on this day. At the end of all the prasad distribution episode begins. The most interesting thing about this evening is the Dhunuchi dance. On this day, the pain of the mother's departure was suppressed and the mind of the Bengali was taken to the beat of the drum with Dhunuchi.
Also, this evening, the crowd gathered at Pandel Pandel to see my mother for the last time. Food stalls are not left out either. However, entry to the pujo pandal is prohibited this year. That chat, the food, the hustle and bustle is all set for next year.
