Mahalaya marks the beginning of Durga Puja festivities. Celebrated at the end of Shradh or Pitru Paksha, a 16-day period when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors, Mahalaya marks the beginning of the Durga Puja festival. It is believed that goddess Durga descended the Earth on Mahalaya. This year, Mahalaya will be celebrated on September 28. Mahalaya, a festival of Bengalis, is celebrated across India. It is believed that Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh created Maa Durga to kill evil demon Mahishasura.
On Mahalaya, Mahishasura Mardini, the famous 90-minute musical piece, is played on radio at 4 am and the beautiful rendition can be heard from every Bengali home. The popular piece, composed in 1931 was recited by Birendra Krishna Bhadra and tells the story of Goddess Durga and the victory of good over evil. On this day, sculptors design the eyes of Maa Durga's idols before placing them in grand pandals for Durga Puja festivities.
