Rashtrapati who loved to take the role of a priest in his village Durga Puja

Durga Puja is an annual religious and cultural event where a Bengali takes up a role close to his or her heart. My mother used to cook the ‘bhog’ the community lunch, I used to take the stage to act in plays and everyone has a role in organizing the community event in our respective villages, towns or cities. Former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee loved to take the garb of a priest in his village Durga Puja at his ancestral home in Miriti, Birbhum District , West Bengal, even when he was the Rashtrapati. While the Nation bids adieu to Bharat Ratna , Statesman and Political Leader Pranab Mukherjee, people in Miriti will miss his ‘Sondhi Pujo’ during Durga Puja.
