Unlike traditional position of the Goddess with her children, the Durga pratima of Mukherjee parivar has Lord Ganesh on her left side while Lord Kartikeya on the right side. The idol is of ‘akchala’ pattern. The idol of the Goddess is made in the ‘thakur dalan’ (open courtyard where the festivity is held)of the household.
There was also a practice of releasing Nilkontho bird but according to the government act it is forbidden now. On dashami, the male members of the family are revered by the ‘barondala’ of the Goddess . It marks a new beginning for a prosperous and happy future."
