The best day I like is the Mahalaya, the emotional feeling that the Durga Puja is started. Now Mahalaya has become commercial but I remember those days when Mahalaya was only accessible through radio so everybody used to wait and talk about that seven days prior to it. Early in the morning the whole Bengal used to rise up, 4 am, to tune in to the “mahisaura Mardini” broadcast.
I remember my mom used to tune the radio at quarter to 4 am and I still can hear that sound kooo!! and then at last the voice coming ---  “আকাশবাণী কলকাতা এখন শুরু হচ্ছে " মহিসাসুর মর্দিনী".
এবারেও মহালয়া শুনলাম "ইউ টিউব এর মাধ্যমে"সময়টা একই রেখেছিলাম যদিও মাধ্যম ভিন্ন ছিলো  - " অবস্থা বুঝে বেবস্থা আরকি" . 
But still the same thrilling spiritual feeling when the magical voice of Birendra Krishna Bhadra starts.
এবারেও প্রতিবারের মত চোখে জল এসে গেল যখন শুনলাম  "জাগো মা এবং জাগো দূর্গা জাগো দশপ্রহরনধারিনি"
 
My most favorite day among 4 days of Durga puja is (bodhon) বোধন. I like the part of with the mantras, rituals and the beat of the dhak the face of the idol is unveiled and the priest invokes Devi by instilling life in the idol. Ohh!! I am still getting the goose bumps while I am writing.
I am very excited this year because I am going to “Amar Pujo”, the name itself is very nice. I am a new member, I don’t know anybody except the voice of Rina Nag on phone and the photos of last year event, but I am excited because Rina said that the purpose and goal of Amar Puja is to refresh the childhood memories which we miss here at “সাত সমুদ্র তেরো নদীর পার”.
