Mahanavami comes with tinge of sadness, five days so longed for are about to be over, the Goddess that filled up the altar with her divine beauty will be gone from there for yet another year! So the day moves on heavily. the special hom is held in the afternoon when the Goddess is offered 108 leaves of bel tree, and every member has to be present during that puja. the evening arati of navami is the longest one. no one wants it to be over.
Wish you all a very blessed Durgapuja!
May your world be forever blessed!
