Navratri is over, but people are still basking in the festivities. The nine-day festival is celebrated every year with a lot of pomp and grandeur. The feminine divinity is celebrated, and each day is dedicated to the avatars of Maa Shakti or Maa Durga. In the states of West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam and Odisha, Navratri is celebrated as Durga Puja. One of the largest festivals of the country is celebrated with a lot of lights, food, dedication, colours and devotion. The last day of Navratri is celebrated as Vijaya Dashami in West Bengal and the surrounding states. According to the ritual of Vijaya Dashami, after the idol of Maa Durga along with her four children is immersed in the water, people visit their relatives with sweets to celebrate the festival and start the wait for another year.
