Odisha Celebrates Lakshmi Puja with Gaiety


Bhubaneswar: After Dussehra, festive fervour has once again gripped the people of Odisha with the beginning of 11-day Lakshmi Puja across the State on Wednesday.

Though the scale of the pandal decoration may not be as big as it is for Durga Puja, many puja pandals with large idols of Goddess Lakshmi have been set up with austere decorations at many spots across the city.

The light arrangements have also added a colourful ambience and have made the atmosphere festive.
