Goddess Durga is a form of shakti, the mother of all great energies and destroyer of demons/evil. She is also worshiped annually in the festival called Durga puja. The whole festival revolves around the victory of good over bad and evil powers. The festival starts with many rituals of fast, feast, worship and continues for 10 days. Durga puja helps in eradicating the sins of past life and remove the inherited bad karmas of ancestors. The last four days saptami, ashtami, navmi and dashmi are celebrated with great vivacity and magnificence in India.

That is also true but you can also see this festival celebrating with great joy in all over the India. The goddess is invited on the parva of Mahalaya. The ritual known as `Chokkhu daan` is done after that pran tratishtha take place. From then every day puja and rituals are performed. In the end of the festival maha aarti takes place and the next day the idol is immersed in the water.
