Tarpan

By kunal_seal
I took it on yesterday morning at the time of Mahalaya. It is the time when the Debi Pokkho (it is the beginning of Duga Puja). Tarpan is a ritual where all who have lost their father come to river Ganga to pay their respect to their father and their ancestors. They give "Pindi" (a mixture of various ingredients) to their ancestors and pray for their well being.
