The Durga Puja ends finally

Durga idol immersion

The Durga Puja ends finally with thousands gathering at the banks of Yamuna, Delhi to immerse the Durga idols.
More photos here.

Unfortunately not very far from where I was, a tragedy was taking place-
At least nine persons were feared drowned during immersion of a Goddess Durga idol into the Yamuna at Burari here on Thursday
For some reason the religious gatherings in India too often end up in an accident.
