Navratri Golu – a different form of Puja

Being a typical Bengali, Durga Puja has a special place. I dive headlong into all the fun and craziness during those four days. But, I also like to experience the culture of other communities and countries. So here I am, writing down about my experiences at Navratri Golu in Chennai. The idea of writing this post came to me when I saw the so many viral posts doing round the internet about how Durga Puja is so different from Navratri celebration in rest of the country.

So there I was with my backpack all ready to board...

Sometimes it is the sheer serenity of a place that attracts us and makes us fall in love with the place. After a much busy festive season (Durga Puja), we simply wanted to hide from the world for a day and relax. Also, Agni’s school friends were all meeting for a reunion after 14 long years! We all wanted a place where we can relax as well as enjoy the reunion with friends and family. Singee seemed to fit the bill perfectly, and so we were off to Single for a much awaited reunion. Nothing can be better than...
