During a nine-day period every autumn, Hindus in India and throughout the world worship the Great Goddess, Durgaµ-the formidable deity who is loved like a mother.

This book is what I expected and worth the money. It has valuable information. There is probably no other book like this.

I wish that the Bengali words were there also, spelled in English alphabet.
