Puja Parikrama| Historical Traditional Durga Puja in Kolkata
Many families in Kolkata command private Durga Pujas in their houses. Many of them were affluent and stalwarts in past, specially throughout the Colonial Regime. Though the status isn't affluent because it was in earlier days (mainly as a result of the Zamindari system was abolished post independence), however today’s even, these families perform Durga Puja with a strong dedication maintaining all the rituals properly. The Pujas are older than 300 yrs even. Everybody of the families gather to celebrate Durga Puja as an annual get-together.
