Kataka ra Dashahara (in Oriya) – Dusshera in Cuttack – Year 2010

Last year I posted few photos of Durga Puja in Cuttack. This year here was a deep depression with rain. And I was having a bad cold. It was mostly unlikely for me to roam around and click few photos. But luckily, when I wake up last morning, I found it’s sunny. However I was not fully recovered from cold, I took the opportunity to roam around and take few photos. My sister joined me and I started the celebration on the scooter ride.

Better quality images can be found on my Fickr Account. I am thinking over a best way to share original quality images.

Mosquitoes, Integral Part of Indian Life

In your opinion, which one is the biggest problem, in this world, or in your country? There are quite good options to answer. Global Warming, Terrorism, War, Lack of drinking water, Lack of education, Deficit of fuels for the future, Maoists, and Mosquitoes. You must be thinking, how Mosquitoes made an entry in the list of biggest threats to World? Don’t surprise, they are really a great threat. One night, while I was sleeping and it was around 4.30 AM, mosquitoes attacked me severely, and I could not sleep. And I started planning how to start war against Mosquitosm. Suddenly one mosquito entered into one of my nasal holes and I felt severe pain of sneezing, while I am sleeping. I also surprised how she (yes, that was a female one, because male mosquitoes don’t eat human blood) came to know what was in my mind and suddenly started attacking me!

Ja Devi Sarva Bhuteshu

The Durga Puja or Dussehra is going to start in few days. As it’s one of the most important festivals of India, people are busy in preparation. Dussehra is one of the top attractions of Cuttack (pronounced as ka-ta-ka), my beloved city where I live in (I will write more about it later). When people are busy in preparation for decorating the city and Puja Mandaps with attractive gates, lights, beautiful silver filigrees and statues of Maa Durga with other side god and goddesses. But the Puja already started at all Shakti Peethas of Orissa. Goddesses are worshiped in different veshas during these days. One of the Shakti Peetha of Cuttack – Jaya Durga is situated near my home (Chauliaganja, Cuttack). I was out of city for a couple of days, so I missed some veshas of Jaya Durga, but since last two days I am visiting the temple in the evening and taken photos of Goddess. I will post all those in this post, so please read this tomorrow to see something new.
