The pics above and below were clicked last evening at Coimbatore on Vijaya Dashmi
Day where a troupe representing Durga Maa and her retinue of
hunters,drummers & dancers were seen gallivanting on T.V.Swamy Road
(opp.Nilgiris Supermarket) dancing with gay abandon and readily posing
for pictures. Maa Durga is another form of Sakthi the consort of Lord Siva who has taken this demonic form to destroy all evil forces on earth. Durga Puja or Kali Puja is celebrated in a big way across India during the Navaratri Festival.
