People from far away villages came to take part in this grand celebration. With the advancement of time, we all have been busier and busier in our lives and the landscape of this festival has changed. Nowadays, the day begins by offering puja to the goddess. Huge ques of devotees can be seen in front of Kalighat and Dakhineswar on this day. This day marks the beginning of new accounts for most of the shop owners. Especially the jewellery stores.
