The Durga Puja celebrations have been in its full swing. Right from Mahalaya that marks the beginning of the festival to Navami (ninth day of celebrations), we celebrate the festival with great pomp and show. Yesterday, on Vijayadashami, we bade-adieu Goddess Durga, with a promise to welcome her again next year. Actress Rani Mukerji, who has been rejoicing in the festivities of Durga Puja, celebrated Vijayadashami with 'Sindur Khela' yesterday at a Durga Puja pandal in Mumbai. In this ritual, married women put on sindur or vermilion on Maa Durga's forehead and feet and thereafter they apply it on other married women present around them. The 39-year-old actress was all smiles and looked elated in a traditional Bengali sari while she played with sindur with other married women.
