Navrathri has just gone by but memories linger on.The members of a Bengali family come back home to be with family, do themselves up in all gorgeous finery, hang out with friends,gorge on delectables until the shirt buttons would threaten to go asunder; and the time when all memories of near and far would throng the senses and take one back in time to the times lived through.Read on about There is something about Pujo..
Another nostalgia that revolves around Pujo.It witnesses some Kaleidoscopic memories filled with fun,frolic and lots of good food.It also makes the vivid memories come alive only to realize that she is far far away from the warmth of that familiarity.
