If there is any one thing that sets the tone for Durga Puja from day one, it is the sound of the dhak or the traditional drum that is a must at every puja pandal. The dhakis who play them are poor, out-of-work farm labourers from rural Bengal, who take a break from sowing and reaping to come and drum to herald the arrival of the goddess.
