Five-day long Durga Puja finally comes to an end today through the celebration of Bijoya Dashami after performing the sacred rituals of Sashthi, Saptami, Ashtami and Navami.
Bijoya Dashami will end with the idols of Mother Goddess and her four children– Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartik and Ganesha–taken in processions for immersion in river or sea.
People who are living far away from their families or those who are more technologically inclined send Bijoya cards, Bijoya greeting cards and Bijoya egreeting to wish Subho Bijoya to their relatives and near and dear ones. The internet too has lead to the convenience of wishing while sitting in the ease of the living room. The Bijoya greeting cards are not only free but most of bijoya cards are almost guaranteed to reach the recipient owing to the sender receiving an email notification of the recipient receiving the card. As more and more people as being able to access the internet with an ease, wishing Shubho Bijoya Dashami during the Durgapuja has become not only convenient but also very reasonably priced.
