Sindoor Khela…. women camaraderie … where strangers become well-wishers ..

Part of Debi Boron/ Durga Boron is the popular and much loved ritual of ‘sindoor khela’ (Play with kumkum) at the end of Durga Puja.

Post applying Durga and her consorts with sindoor, ladies apply it to each other and wish each other well for the coming year. A sweet meat is offered to each lady and wished sweet-times ahead.

Sindoor Khela is a beautiful tradition, where even strangers are heartfelt well-wishers and bless each other for sweet and happy times ahead. There is no judgement, only good wishes and positive energy. Could we not do this everyday? As in, wish even strangers well? There would certainly be less strife in the world..
