Basanti Durga puja catching up in Cuttack

Cuttack: Basanti Durga Puja, which involves worshipping Goddess Durga in spring season, is now slowly but steadily catching up here.

As many as 22 pandals of the city are holding the Basanti Durga puja this year which began yesterday with almost equal spiritual fervor and grandeur as is observed during the Sharadiya Durga puja in autumn season.

The district administration too has made elaborate arrangements for the four-day long puja celebrations.
