The five-day Durga Puja, the greatest religious festival of the Hindus, ended on Monday with the immersion of Durga idols all over Bangladesh.
Bijoya Dashami, the special ceremony to reaffirm peace and good relations among people, was also celebrated afterwards. Hundreds joined a procession from Palashi in the capital and paraded the city through the National Press Club, Gulistan, and English Road with idols of Durga and her children Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartik and Ganesh before the immersion. Security was tight this year.
