After a long week of fun and enjoyment today is the last day of durga puja. With the departure of ma durga, its very emotional moment for every Bengali who bid adieu to debi and wait for another one year for her ‘Agomon’.
In Bengali tradition, the meaning of the term Bijoya, means Victory in the literal sense. Shubho Bijoya, thus, means “The Positive Victory”. Bijoya is celebrated from the final day of Durga Puja, that means, from Vijaya Dashami till Kali Puja or Diwali. That is, it has a celebration time of about almost a month. Vijaya Dashami signifies Maa Durga’s victory over the demon God, Mahisasur. This signifies the conquest of good over the evil. Shubho Bijoya is the way of greeting each other after the Durga Puja to mark this victory of positive energy in our lives.
Subho Bijaya to each and every person, wishing you a prosperous year ahead.
Pujor din r khusir hawa,
Char-diner ei chawa-pawa,
Sob periye aj bijoya,
Shuvecha tai janiye dewa,
Mon bole aj dhaker robey,
Asche bachar abar hobe,
