The Hindu festival of Durga Puja is celebrated to mark the triumph of good over evil. The north eastern states in India celebrate it with singing, dancing, feasting and praying. It signifies the defeat of the demon Mahishasura. However, this year, the coronavirus demon has replaced Mahishasura. The head looks like a Sars Cov- 2 particle. Some others have made it green in colour. Everyone is eager to fight against the coronavirus which is currently the demon. As people are prohibited from attending the celebrations and visiting pandals, everything is being live streamed on YouTube and Facebook, so that people can view it online.
Meanwhile an Assamese artist has created an idol of Goddess Durga by making use of 30,000/ expired tablets, capsules and syringes.
