Today is Durga Saptami, the second day of Durga Puja 2020. Maa Durga is here with Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartik and Ganesha. Early on Saptami morning, Kola Bou Snan or Nabapatrika is the main ritual. It symbolises abundance, peace and prosperity. The nine plants of Nabapatrika represent the nine avatars of Goddess Durga. Significantly, Nabapatrika is very popular among the farmers in rural Bengal and on this day they pray for a good harvest. Durga Puja also coincides with the nine-day Navratri. Even though the festivities are low-key due to the Covid-19 pandemic, people are meeting and greeting each other on online platforms. Many Durga Puja organizers have gone live on Facebook during the main rituals to share the puja ambience.
