In India, Rice has always been considered as a symbol of prosperity since ages… the primary reason being that India was  & is still traditionally a farmer’s country.

Hence when we worship Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth,prosperity and success; a cup of rice is always decorated besides the idol to venerate the goddess and pray that wealth and prosperity always keeps flowing in the house. Decided to focus of that symbol for this year….

In Bengal, a lot of families worship Maa Lakshmi on Kojagari night rather than Diwali night.

Alpona, Luchi, Naaru are few of the delicacies that are prepared for the festivities. 😀
