Durga Puja marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the evil demon Mahishasura. A triumph of good over evil, thus, it is a festival of worship, joy and merrymaking.
Assam is one of those few states that celebrate Durga Puja with much pomp and show. It is a major and the biggest festival of the year for the Hindus.
