PREFACE

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
On the Vijaya day when the puja is over and the image is immersed in water, Uma is supposed to go back to her husband's place again for a year. While praying to Durga at the time of Visharjan people actually weep just as the parents do when their daughter goes back to her husband's place after a very short stay at her father's place. The conception of Lord Siva in Bengal also differs from the conception in other parts of India. He is taken else where as the Lord of the Universe and if he is angry the gods tremble. But Lord Siva is normally taken in Bengal as the Bhol  who does not know to dress properly, who remains intoxicated with ganja and who moves about like a mad per sonage.

He is pitied and loved fondly and regarded deeply. He is worshipped reverentially. In a similar manner, let us  think of the difference in the conception of Lord Krishna in Bengal and elsewhere. The first conception of Lord Krishna in Bengal is as the Nani Chor Bal Gopala, the mis- chievous little boy who steals cream and butter from the stock, of her mother  and the other ladies. He is full of breaks the milk pots and runs wild prank ' as the lover in the highest sense and his He is next conceived flute makes the opines to  h im intoxicated with love.
