                 I have already received your letter. In your letter your wanted to know about Durga Puja and how I enjoyed. Every region of India has its own festivals and Durga Puja is one of the festivals that is celebrated with great fervour in Kolkata, West Bengal. Indian festivals have always been an extravagant affair. Every festival here is celebrated with great zest. During Durga Puja, the state of West Bengal comes alive in all its grandeur. People from all regions come together to celebrate this festival. It is about huge idols of Goddess Durga, flashy pandals, exchanging gifts, authentic Bengali food, and spending time with loved ones. I had a nice time during the pujas. The peak period of my pleasure and enjoyment was during the four days of the Durga Puja festival. I, along with my parents, went round our town visiting almost all the puja pandals. They were nicely decorated as well as illuminated.

 Hoping you are well and with love, 

Sincerely yours

Sourav
