Sindoor Khela marks Vijaya Dashami

Bengali women applied vermilion (Sindoor) to Goddess Durga before bidding her farewell on the Vijaya Dashami Day at a Puja Pandal in Patna on October 11, 2016. The women also applied vermilion to each other faces which is traditionally known as Sindoor Khela (Vermilion play). Sindoor (vermilion) is the symbol of long-lasting happy married life and prosperity.
