Bengal gears up to celebrate Kali Puja
Kali Puja or Shyama Puja is a Hindu festival predominantly celebrated by the Bengali community.
Being a nocturnal event, it calls for special preparation
Goddess Kali is the destroyer of evil as she is the female form of Lord Shiva and the more expressive form of Goddess Shakti.
Kali, as the very name suggests, means black or dark, the colour of the Goddess herself.
She embodies the extreme of everything.
