How are you? I hope you and your family all are well. Today I am going to share with you about a great festival of West Bengal Kali Puja. This festival takes place in the Bengali month of Kartik. During this festival the weather is very pleasant. The festival lasts for only two days. Thousands of people participate in this festival. All the pandals are decorated with different kind of lightings. The puja of goddess Kali is held at midnight. In the morning the idol is abandoned. We enjoy these two days very much wearing new dresses, eating different kind of foods and visiting so many pandals.
No more today. Please reply to this letter as soon as possible.

Your loving friend.

Rudra
