Durga puja passes off peacefully in Tripura

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, Oct 18 � The four-day Durga puja festival passed off peacefully in Tripura with no untoward incident being reported barring a few road mishaps.

Serpentine queues were seen in front of puja pandals and the police had a harrowing time in controlling the crowds during the festivities.

Despite intermittent rains, people came out of their homes in their traditional best and hopped from one pandal to another, relished food at restaurants as well as roadside eateries and enjoyed every moment of the festival.

In rural areas too, the four-day festivities passed off on a high note as large crowds joined the festival despite threat from nature in the form of a depression.

Along with city dwellers, people of rural areas were too in a festive mood during the festival � worshiping the benevolent Goddess.

Reports from Amarpur in South district said, pujas were observed at Taidu, Ompi, Korbok, Chelagang, once considered as a militant hotbed, with full enthusiasm and traditional gaiety.

As many as 72 pujas were organised in the subdivision but the pandal of TSR 5th Bn at Doloma attracted the most puja hoppers. However, the festive spirit was marred on Maha Saptami night with a heavy shower leaving a trail of destruction.

�It is indeed good that people enjoyed the four-day festivities without any major problems�, said a top police officer. The �scheduled� immersion process was over without any problem in the city which hosted over 350 pujas, he said.
