    Hi friend..
    Kali Puja is celebrated on a day before Diwali in West Bengal.
    This year Diwali is on 3rd November and therefore Kali puja is on 2nd November.
    Kali Puja Nishita Time = 23:44 to 24:36+
    Kali Puja is also called as Shyama Puja.

    Devotees fast on this day and perfom puja. The puja starts at night and prevails till the dawn. They light 108 diyas, offer flowers to goddess kali, naibiddo (Prasad) and many other rituals. Devotees burst crackers after the Puja.

    Hey Aanchal,

    Here is a short note about goddess kali.

    Kali is the fearful and ferocious form of the mother goddess. She assumed the form of a powerful goddess and became popular with the composition of the Devi Mahatmya, a text of the 5th - 6th century AD. Here she is depicted as having born from the brow of Goddess Durga during one of her battles with the evil forces. As the legend goes, in the battle, Kali was so much involved in the killing spree that she got carried away and began destroying everything in sight. To stop her, Lord Shiva threw himself under her feet. Shocked at this sight, Kali stuck out her tongue in astonishment, and put an end to her homicidal rampage. Hence the common image of Kali shows her in her melee mood, standing with one foot on Shiva's chest, with her enormous tongue stuck out.
