Pandal to begin crafting Durga idol with ritual
MUMBAI: Ganeshotsav is yet to begin, but one corner of Powai gives the impression that Navratras are here already. The Powai Bengali Welfare Association (PBWA), which organizes a grand Durga Puja in this suburb, is hosting the Khuti puja on Sunday morning. This ritual signals the start of the idol carving process for Durga Puja, much like the Padya pujan seen before Ganeshotsav.
