Delhi Durga Puja Samiti, popularly known as the Kashmere Gate Durga Puja, started in 1910 and is the oldest community Durga Puja of Delhi. It is held in the lawns of Bengali Senior Secondary School, at Alipur Road. In the last 100 years, it is admirable how the puja has been able to maintain the tradition of the past and hold on to its roots, generations after generation. The idol, in traditional ekchala daaker saaj, is crafted by artisans whose forefathers have been crafting for the last hundred years. An unique tradition still maintained is the immersion procession, on Dashami afternoon, when Maa Durga and her children travel on a bullock cart to the ghats of Yamuna. Hundred years ago that was the only means of transport but the organizers have held on to the tradition decade after decade. Surprisingly the bullocks are provided by the same family who used to provide them hundred years back.
