The second day of Diwali is usually observed as the Lakshmi Puja, however people in West Bengal, Odisha and Assam worship Goddess Kali on this auspicious day. Like Lakshmi Puja, Kali Pujo is too celebrated with great fervour. All over the country, temples and shrines display one of the most prevalent images of the Goddess Kali. Besides the pujo pleasantries, the most intriguing part of the festivity is the simple and delicious Bhog. People offer khichudi, luchi and some vegetables, also some enjoy mangsho aka goat meat- after the conclusion of Puja.

Here are some of the TV beauties sharing their memories of Kali Pujo and excitement of celebrating Kali Pujo this year.

Yuvika Chaudhary: I’m devoted to mother Kali. So the festival is really important for me. I feel her blessings to be with me in my good and bad times. I have many childhood memories. We all use to enjoy with great fun and glory in our societies. Puja happens during mid-nights and then we use to enjoy bhogs. Here, in Mumbai, I do visit kali maa temple for blessings.

Devoleena Bhattacharjee: On Kali Puja, we devotees of Kali will honour this goddess by decorating our homes and equipping them with shrines to the goddess. During the evening hours, she is mostly worshipped using mantras and Tantric rites and is offered red hibiscus flowers and various food offerings which may include lentils, rice, khichuri and other sweets and fruits. The festival is important for us.

Debina Bonnerjee: Kali Puja is one of the major festivals for people in West Bengal and northeast. We celebrate the occasion with much gusto and enthusiasm. Just as people in other parts of India light lamps to honour Lakshmi Ma during Diwali, people in West Bengal also celebrate the same day as Kali Puja by lighting lamps in honour of Goddess Kali. The puja is performed at mid-nights. I remember we use to prepare bhog and use to go to temples for puspanjali.

Mahika Sharma: The festival of Diwali is also observed as Kali pujo. This momentous day is celebrated by performing the Puja with faith. We seek protection and blessings, happiness, health and prosperity from the god. Kali Poojan is performed only at midnight on Amavasya and later the bhog and dhak nach is enjoyed. I’ll be going to Kali temple here in Mumbai and will take blessings and will be part of puspanjali too.
