** Om Jayanti Mangala kali bhadra kali kapalini
Durga shama shiva dhatri swaha swadha namostutae **
Her presence bequeaths power, her grandeur unparallel; her beauty captivates the heart to the core, her glimpse eliminates the evil and with her arrival festival season begins. Such is the splendor of Maa Durga... and the festival of Navaratri lifts up the spirit of joy inside us. There are lots of memories associated with Durga Pooja, the celebrations, sound of drums and aarti, happy faces all around, bright lights, but what has always took my breath away… is the magnificent statue of Maa Durga.
As festival season has started …I have decided to decorate my blog with festive colors too…and what could be better than attempting to paint Maa Durga... below is my humble attempt.
