Sunita remembers the Mahalaya, when the Goddess is invoked to drive away darkness from our lives. A poem for the Durga Puja special feature, in Different Truths.
She of the allied forces, He of the foe, She of the lion, He of the buffalo. Symbolise victories, Ethical histories Come together, fight, Of dawn overnight. Mahalaya brings us new light, As we open our sight. To drive away darkness from our lives, Sending us positive vibes. Forget worries and past sorrows, Let’s hope to see a better tomorrow.
