Basanti Puja

Basanti-Durga-idol-at-Binod-Behari

 

About the Festival

Observed on the month of Chaitra (March/April), According to Markanda Purana, King Surath and Samadhi Vaishya were adviced to perform Basanti Durga Puja in order to get back their kingdom by sage Medha . Both of them followed the Sage’s advise and got back their Kingdom . This possibly started the ritual of Basanti Durga Puja in the region.
In Odisha the festival is mainly observed in spirit, with ladies of the house offering prayers, however lately Basanti Durga idols are being created and various pandals set up just like the autumn Durga Puja.

Ramnavami is also celebrated with great fervour these days and various stages are decorated where acts of Ramayana are carried out.
