Hearts have waited for so very long
Mind and soul do dance along
The breeze does rush through the grass
And awaits the earth adorned in kaans
The drummers await as she comes
A-midst the rhythmic beat of drums
And so do wait the millions of feet
To tap and dance along the street!
The pandals get ready as they wait
To house the carrier of dreams great
The sculptors make strokes flawless
As they give form to the formless!
Shubho Mahalaya to all of you! Today is the day when Mahishasur Mardini… The destroyer of the deamon Mahishasur was formed. And we all wait as she arrives again as the destroyer of all evils to reside in our hearts…
Let the celebrations begin….

Happy ‘this’ day 😛 I don’t know what you call it , the word is so difficult. And I really hope what you just described, happens soon…..Love your beautiful poetic words !
Haven’t been able to read comments on my blog till now….Busy in exams. Dua kerna achay ho jaen….
October 4, 2013 at 10:45 pm
Hahaha ‘this’ day is called ‘Mahalaya’ (محالیا )…
\And I understand your clue-less-ness on what I described; I guess I would have to write a post explaining the festival… Don’t worry… kar doonga…
Bilkul… mast honge… tu bindaass padh… Durga puja ke time kisi ka kuchh bura nahin hota… to tera kaise hoga? 😛 😉

October 4, 2013 at 10:10 pm
Such a picturesque poetry!
October 4, 2013 at 10:15 pm
I am glad (and a bit surprised) that you could relate to the poetry. Thanks!
May Lord Durga remove all obstacles from your life… 🙂
Shubho Mahalaya to you
By the way… did you too find the word Mahalaya difficult to pronounce?
October 4, 2013 at 10:24 pm
Not difficult to pronounce, just that I don’t know! And surprised? See, doesn’t mean if I didn’t comment on last one tou I won’t comment on this one bhi. 😀
And you’re welcome.
October 4, 2013 at 10:32 pm
Nahin Nahin… Woh White Pearl bol rahi thi ki ‘this’ day is difficult to pronounce… 🙂 so I thought ki aapke liye bhi hoga…
Arrey maine aisa kab kaha? I was surprised because many words used here are quite indegenous… like ‘kaans’, ‘pandal’, the drummers etc. So I thought you would not know about them… but I guess the theme of the poem gets conveyed without these words too… 🙂
October 4, 2013 at 10:38 pm
You’re right, the theme of this poem is well-conveyed! 🙂 Though google isn’t helping me with kaans. Pandal pata chal gya.
October 4, 2013 at 10:55 pm
Kaans is a special kind of flower… jiska photo daala hai post mein… It is iconic of the arrival of autumn and hence marks the Durga Puja time.
The drummers mentioned are actually called ‘Dhaakis’ and the drums are called ‘Dhaak’. People dance to the rhythms of the Dhaak in praise and welcome of Goddess Durga…
You may look at my last year’s post
The last third photo is that of Dhaak and the fourth last is that of the dance… called ‘Dhupchi Naach’
October 5, 2013 at 9:30 am
Love ‘kaans’ 🙂
Yup read your prev post. Dhupchi naach is a unique word!
October 5, 2013 at 11:01 am
Uh Oh! typo… its Dhunchi and not Dhupchi… My bad…
October 5, 2013 at 12:01 pm
Oh okay 😉 Dhunchi…
