Today is Mahalaya. The day when the mother goddess Durga descends on earth.
This time I was already left untouched by the aura of the pujas. But the soggy and wet beginning marred the spirit which I thought the early hours chanting of :
"Yaa Devi Sarva Bhooteshu
Nidraa Roopena Samsthita
Namastasai Namastasai Namastasyai Namo Namaha..."
Its still raining. It's 8.33am (IST).
May be it was Her plan.
For most of the believers, a stroll in the Mahalaya morning ushers in the wellness of the succeeding pujas. This time the start has been such drippy as if the sunny side will never rise.
May be it signifies the rejuvenation of the inner numbness.
May the rains wash away all the lifeless remains in the air starting from the Mahalaya day itself...
