Dussehra Festival Pictures: Unlimited Enthusiasm in Hyderabad

By: Sourav

Navratri and Durga Puja in Hyderabad may not be as grand as in Gujarat and Bengal. But the festival is celebrated with lots of enthusiasm, which is evident in the ceremonies like dandiya, garba, dhunuchi nach, sindur khela, etc. I caught glimpses of the madly Bangali performing dhunuchi nach at Hyderabad Bengali Samity, and the spectacular immersion procession at Hussain Sagar. The night was sleepless and the atmosphere was eloquent in the area around Hussain Sagar Lake. Horses carrying flags hit the street, and there was a street performance too. The enthusiasm was unlimited. I would like to share some of the pictures of Dussehra Festival in Hyderabad from my album:
