: It is known that our puja was started on account of a "Swapnadesh" (order through Dream) given to Late RAMLAL DE, the head of our Family during that regime. Family Background – Ramlal De was born in the year 1846 in a place called ‘Gobor-danga’ located in the city of Calcutta. He started the Durga Puja of our family in the year 1870. His 3 sons were Atul Krishna De, Anukul Krishna De & Radha Kanta De. Among them Atul Krishna De & Anukul Krishna De started business of Cotton, bed-sheets and pillow in that era. This tradition is still followed in our family by their descendants. One day he saw that a mother with her 2 daughters & 2 sons were waiting in-front of our main door. When he asked her whom she wants to meet, then the mother with her sons & daughters enters into our house without answering the question and disappeared. No one could find her in our house. Also one day Goddess Durga came in the dreams of Ramlal De and orders him to worship her in our house. This was the occasion of starting of Durga Puja in our ‘De Family’. Currently puja is being carried on by Sri Khangendra Nath De (grandson of Ramlal De) and other subordinate members of our family. Durga Puja festival marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the evil buffalo demon Mahishasura. Thus, Durga Puja festival epitomises the victory of Good over Evil. The prominence of Durga Puja increased gradually during the British Raj in Bengal. After the Hindu reformists identified Durga with India, she became an icon for the Indian independence movement. On the day of ‘Rath-Yatra’ the frame of the idol (In Bengali- kathamo) is worshipped by our priest which represents the starting of making the idols. From the day of ‘Janmasthami’ the poter started making the idol at our own houses.
