We began our puja pandal hopping yesterday, on Saptami. To add to the fun, my old friend and classmate back at school, Sailesh (now in NIT, Silchar) and his parents decided to accompany us.
We spent the morning with a get-together at our home with them. I and Sailesh had lots of fun talking about the good old times and also discussing over our present college lives.
In the afternoon, we all went out for pandal hopping. We took the National Highway 37 from Jalukbari, and visited the pandals on the way. After that, we entered the city at Lokhra, and followed Lokhra road to Lal Ganesh and Kalapahar and then all the way to Paltan Bazar via Chattribari, Rehabari and Birubari. Finally it was 8 PM and time to go home.
Some glimpses of the pandals we saw:
Also an unforgettable moment when I shot a pic of our family car while riding Sailesh’s family car.
Today, on Ashtami, I’ll be going out again for seeing more pandals.
I’ll be uploading all the photos as soon as I sort everything out.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Have a wonderful puja everyone!
