MMM: Durga Puja

Mostly Montreal Monday

Shots and thoughts from my new home of Montreal

This past Monday was Canadian Thanksgiving, or as it is called here, Thanksgiving.  We did not have any plans so I was grateful to see the Montreal Bengali Association’s Durga Puja fall on the same day.  Our opportunities to celebrate Bengali traditions are few, the most recent being last October’s Annaprashan for Farrah Star.  Vain as I am, my mother-in-law had gifted me an outfit to wear in lieu of a sari and I was eager to try it but really I was just eager to do something different and go someplace new, as always.

It was a strange and beautiful morning and though I didn’t understand it, I enjoyed being witness and weaving another thread in the fabric between my in-laws and my children.
