Durga puja

Say What? What is a Durga puja, now you know! How would you like an uninterrupted 10-day public holiday? Read more about it over at BBC News! An interesting comment was made by s_ghoshroy, who wrote, “Congrats to BBC for putting this story about Durga Puja on the front page. Those of us living in the US are envious of our fellow countrymen who can enjoy a 10-day stretch. We fight here about whether we can get Christmas Eve off, or the day after Thanksgiving. Despite the perceived work culture, or a lack thereof in Bengal, vast majorities of Indians who are poor work very hard. No holidays!” So, do you believe that India’s big holiday season is a Bane or boon?
