STILL IN THE FESTIVE AND JOYOUS MOOD!!!
The most-awaited festival of the year, especially for the Bengalis, i.e., Durga Puja is over now. With heavy hearts and a ray of hope for the next year’s puja we prayed to Goddess Durga for her blessings. However, our festive spirit is still intact, isn’t it? This is quite natural since the month is filled with festivals and the ‘the festival of lights’ is still yet to be celebrated! Most of us usually take a long break and go on a trip during this time. But some of us are still in this ‘city of joy’ to celebrate every festival and enjoy them thoroughly! Are you one of them? If yes, you can visit the following places in the city and make each day special!
