Photographer's Note

Time is not far away when Mother Goddess Durga will unveil herself and will emerge as the most powerful to end miseries.

*** This snap is taken today and I have to go inside the plastic cover and take the snap. I liked the colour of the sunlight getting through the yellow texture of the plastic***


Goddess Durga is the mother of the universe and believed to be the power behind the work of creation, preservation, and destruction of the world. Since time immemorial she has been worshipped as the supreme power of the Supreme Being and has been mentioned in many scriptures - Yajur Veda, Vajasaneyi Samhita and Taittareya Brahman.

The word "Durga" in Sanskrit means a fort, or a place which is difficult to overrun. Another meaning of "Durga" is "Durgatinashini," which literally translates into "the one who eliminates sufferings." Thus, Hindus believe that goddess Durga protects her devotees from the evils of the world and at the same time removes their miseries.

Hope you all will njoy the snap !!!
