AFTER Bengal and Tripura, Barak Valley in Assam is another abode of the Bengalis in India. And like all places inhabited by the Bengalis, here too Durga Puja is the main festival.
In Silchar, the hub of Barak Valley, the history of Durga Puja is over 200 years old. The town is dotted with hundreds of community Durga Pujas; there are a few household Durga Puja too ~ the prominent one being at the house of erstwhile zamindar Baroda Kanta Das at Purna Pal Road.
We present below a photo tour of the select community Durga Pujas in Silchar with their uniqueness being explained in the caption.
