Festivities knocking at the door…

As I woke up this morning,this song from my childhood suddenly flooded me,a cheerful rendition by Antara Choudhury that goes,”Aaye re chute aaye,Pujor gondho esheche…pujor gondho esheche..gacche shiuli phooteche ..kalo bhromora juteche..”

Yes,its that time of the year again when the air suddenly smells of poojo,those endless shopping for new dresses,shoes and accessories,the Mahalaya playing on the system on a loop,the rehearsals for dance dramas,the hectic cleaning up of the house before Ma finally comes home.
