Durga Puja: 5 Days, 5 Sarees Challenge

Durga Maa
Ever since the Dengue and Chickengunia have made it to the list of epidemics plaguing Delhi (others being rape and road rage etc.), I have started burning coconut husk and dhuno (Frankincense) in the evenings to banish mosquitoes.

It is something my grandmothers, aunts and mum would use in the evening for puja.

With the rains finally leaving us alone, the weather has taken a turn for the pleasant.
