West Bengal observes Kali Puja today

Kolkata, Nov 6 (IBNS); Continuing the spirit of festivity and enjoyment, people of West Bengal on Tuesday observed 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.

Days after West Bengal celebrates Durga Puja, Kali Puja gives people of the state another oppurtunity to soak in some moment of merry-making.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said Kali Puja will be held in her residence on Tuesday.

She tweeted: "Like every year, #KaliPuja is being celebrated at my residence. This Pujo is more than 40 years old now. You can witness the festivities LIVE on my #Facebook page tonight around 7 PM."

TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee posted: "My best wishes to all on the joyous occasion of #KaliPuja. May the light of the festival fill your life with prosperity and joy. "
