I want to know about the Sindur Khela tradition in Durga Puja. Can anybody explain?..


The day of Vijaya Dashami holds immense significance for married women who celebrate the occasion with `Sindur Khela`. Married women put Sindur or vermilion on Maa Durga`s forehead and feet and thereafter they apply it on other married women present around them. Since Sindur is a sign of a married woman, by following this ritual women wish for a blessed marital life for one another.
