Last year (2015) when I was in Hyderabad, without a decent internet connection I was absolutely aghast, had nothing to do all day long but watch idiot box, but in place of growling around I passed it busy as bee, creating my 3 tributes for the mother Goddess.
Now, with all these years since I paid my final visit to Kamalpur (1998), my ancestral puja I decided to write them down, before I forget, and I already have forgotten some of the rituals 😦
I should thank Troy (kestalusrealm.wordpress.com) for this, because his desire resulted in my daring to write these books. He is the wind beneath my writing wings for quite some time, by reading my works and sharing his views on them, especially the ones about India.
durgapuja mayer paye 108 agnishatdal: It is bilingual, Bengali and English but both are parallel, and self-complete, Bengalis will enjoy both poems and those who know only one language wont mind not knowing the other.
It is mostly poems and of course full of illustrations, but available only as ebook.
