An ODE to DURGA! – Part 1.

From The Desk Of Gehna Mehra:

I dedicate my opening blog to the Power of Durga-

She is Divine
She is Sublime

She is Here
She is There
She is Everywhere….

She is You
She is ME
She is She

She is Parvati -Ardhangani
She is Gauri – The Peace Bearer
She is Kali – Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scarred
She is Vaishno – Pahadan Wali – Sheran Wali Avataar
She is Durga – MAA Roop.

She is Power
She is Belief.

She is the Maker
She is the Destroyer.

She embodies the Truth
She shuns Lies.

She is the Torch Bearer of the adage – The Triumph of Truth over Evil !

She reinstates our belief in the Power of STREE SHAKTI.

She is the Fiery RED
She is the Beautiful BLACK.

The Matra Bindu on her forehead is symbolic of the 3rd Eye.
I wear the BIG Red on my forehead too…..

Her Powerful Hands gave strength to MINE .

Co -incidence?………..give it some thought !!!


I had the privilege of capturing through my lens the soul stirring Murtis of Maa,
last year during Durga Pujo 2016 in Land of Durga herself – Kolkatta ……….
in the wee hours of the morning going Pandal Hopping – A bucket list tick off.

An experience which has to be felt from within.
It was meditation with my eyes WIDE open !

As an Ode to Maa I will be writing a DURGA TRILOGY blog which comprises of my direct connect with her……..and indirect connect with MYSELF!!!

Believe it or not.
