Of marigold and memories
Chhath puja is a Hindu ceremony where the Bihari community worships the Sun God Surya. It is performed at dusk and dawn six days after the festival of Diwali. In Nov2011, I covered the puja being performed at the Teesta river near my hometown Kalimpong. Here, as dawn breaks in the valley, the ceremonies gradually die down and the devotees return home leaving a restless river, some votive lamps being carried by the current, marigold flowers and memories.
