These Photos of Durga Puja from Bihar and Jharkhand will Make you Miss Home

For the people of Bihar and Jharkhand living away from home, visiting home on the festivals like Holi, Diwali, and Durga Puja is considered as an utmost priority. An average, middle class Bihari works his ass off in the MNCs of Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi hoping that they could make home in time of atleast one of the festivals.

While I spent Durga Puja of 2017 alone in Delhi, I asked my cousins staying in different corners of Bihar and Jharkhand to share some pictures from their cities. Here are some 🙂

Home was missed this Pujo but I am hoping to be there on time so that I can enjoy Chatth Puja on the ghats of Ganga. If you liked the post then do share it with your friends and family.
