West Bengal declared Nov10th and 11th public holidays on account of Chhath Puja

Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, declared the 10th and 11th of November as public holidays in honor of Chhath Puja. The chief minister was in Kolkata for the opening ceremony of the Jagadhatri puja, which was held at the Barabazar Posta Merchants Association.

“On account of Chhath Puja, the state government has declared November 10 and 11 as public holidays,” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stated. The decision was made in light of the fact that the state has a large population of individuals from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

On November 10, residents in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar will celebrate Chhath Puja, which is a Hindu festival.

The word chhath means “six,” meaning that this celebration is held on the sixth day of the Kartika month. Devotees pray to the God of Light on this day, as he is regarded as the life force that links the universe and provides energy to all living things. Over the course of four days, devotees undertake rituals and prayers. Fasting is the most important aspect of the event, and those who follow a fast on this day are known as ‘Vrati.’
