Bijoya Dashami celebrations muted this year amid Covid-19

Oct 26, 2020 17:54 IST

The 5-day long Durga Puja celebrations came to an end on Bijoya or Bijoya Dashami on Monday. 

While the day is normally marked with grand festive regalia, this year the celebrations were low-key due to the pandemic. 

Poojas, rituals such as idol immersion ceremony saw fewer attendees and those who stepped out to celebrate wore face masks to stay safe.

The traditional ‘Sindur Khela’ festivities were generally restricted to organisers or local residents due to social distancing norms.
