Kali Puja was celebrated in West Bengal Tuesday with pomp and religious fervour along with a preparation for the Deepavali, which will be held Wednesday.
Ahead of Deepavali, the festival of lights, the city wore a bright look with illumination everywhere, including on all vital installations.
"May the light of the festival fill your life with joy. Soak in the festive spirit, but exercise caution. Your enjoyment should not become the cause of pain for others," she said in a tweet.
In a statement, Tripathi said, "May this festive occasion illuminate our mind and bring joy and happiness to the people of the state."
Tripathi conveys his best wishes to the people of the state for their well-being and happiness.
People came out on the streets in the evening and were seen enjoying fireworks.
However, bursting of crackers was much less this time due to restrictions.
A large number of devotees visited the Kalighat, Dakshineswar and Adyapith Kali temples in and around the city to offer prayers to the Goddess on the auspicious day.
Many important personalities, officials and dignitaries attended the puja.
A number of community pujas at Barasat and Naihati in North 24 Parganas district were major attractions for the people.
All arrangements were made by the police and Fire Services department to prevent any untoward incident.
"The celebrations was peaceful and without any incident," a police official said.
