Kali is worshipped almost round ,the year, but particularly on Saturdays and
Tuesdays the crowds are more. Krishna Chathurti celebrations have the greatest
pull, and devotes in thousands flock and offer prayers with utmost ardour.
Regarding the annual festivals, Deepavali celebrations reach the climax. The
festivity and fervour are of rare kind and the auspicious time of worship has
its uniqueness. Gaiety And sanctity mark the annual festival, when both class
and mass participate lustily. The offering of worship on the midnight of
Amavasya in Oct-Nov is a characteristic feature of Bengali custom. This is an
old custom followed throughout the Bengal over centuries. In Calcutta it is a
gala fair and lacs of people congregate both at Kalighat and Dakshineswar and at
other places of worship too in the City.
