Durga Puja: Saptami

Sari- Byloom, Calcutta (Rs 1750), Neckpiece-Gifted, Watch-DKNY (Rs 9000), Shoes-Bought online (Rs 2000), On my lips- Colorbar hearts and tarts
My friends and I had decided to wear a sari on Saptami. But my bitches, one of whom didn't turn up, and the other ditched me and didn't wear a sari. Pujo is for dressing up so I didn't really care. The one reason I bought this sari is for the cute pom pom-like thing on it. And it does make me look so bong :) 
Calcutta never looks more beautiful than this time of the year. The vibrancy and energy of the city rubs off on you. Every small street is lit up, there are pretty pandals at every nook and corner and the roads are as crowded during the day as at night *the down side is the horrible traffic* Though I have never been big on pandal hopping. 
For me, puja has always been about family. I've spent most of my pujas at home with the immediate and extended family. I didn't think I'd get to go home this year because you know WORK! But I managed to get a three-day off and dad booked me tickets back home. I leave in an hour. Yay!

Happy Pujas/Navratra!
