Reflecting on 'being adult' on Dashami...

At a time when Durga Puja has remained a distant childhood memory, the advent of the special occassion or the end of the festivity has ceased to churn emotions of joy and sadness...
however i miss the innocent happiness of childhood in just being able to be part of the festivity.

Friends and family together...flocking around Goddess Durga... going out to see the different pandels in kolkata and staying awake the whole night... these used to mean a lot...

Quote from Eugene Ionesco very nicely illustrates this - 
The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us.  When the world seems familiar, when one has got used to existence, one has become an adult.

Happy Durga Puja to all!
