The nine-day Hindu festival of Durga Puja culminated,Tuesday, October 8, with devotees across India immersing idols of Goddess Durga in water bodies, in a symbolic farewell.

In the eastern parts of the country, devotees, mostly women, participated in the social revelry with the conclusion of Navratri, which celebrates women in all their forms. They danced with joy and smeared bright red vermilion on each other, as a part of a tradition known as 'Sindoor Khela' to mark the end of the festival.
