“May these nine days and nine nights bring you and your family good health and fortune. Wishing you a very Happy Durga Puja.”
“May Goddess Durga bestow her nine forms of blessings on you and your family: Fame, Wealth, Prosperity, Name, Happiness, Education, Health, Power, and Commitment. Happy Durga Puja.”
Wikipedia tells me that “the festival epitomises the victory of good over evil, though it is also in part a harvest festival celebrating the goddess as the motherly power behind all of life and creation.” Politics aside, I am very much in favor of both harvest festivals, and the triumph of goodness.
"Just by virtual of one single election, things don't become perfect. But you get yourself on a pattern, on a habit, of being better represented and getting better served by your government." – @BarackObama
