Durga Puja
________

Durga Puja

For five days in October
People assemble and worship
To the divine goddess Durga
Who has power like a whip

Many people come
To this grand celebration
They wear nice garments
To pray for the demon's destruction

This is a major festival
For Bengali Hindus across the Earth
Not mattering what creed they are
Everyone from Portland to Perth

This is a religious occasion
Also being a social event
Itís a time when people gather
And enjoy it 100 percent


Indrajeet Mondol.
