What is Sindoor Khela?
In the Bengali community, Sindoor Khela is a customary element of the Durga Puja celebrations. During the culmination of Durga Puja on Vijayadashami, the ceremony entails applying sindoor, or vermilion powder, to the idols of Goddess Durga and among married ladies. This is prior to the idols being immersed. After the "ghat visarjan" (a symbolic immersion of Durga signalling the conclusion of the Puja ceremonies) on the day of Dussehra or Vijayadashami, Goddess Durga is said to bid adieu for the year. In the Bengali culture, it is standard practise to make an offering of sindoor to married daughters as a parting gift.

Sindoor Khela is traditionally played by married ladies who adhere to certain customs and traditions. Sindoor Khela is thought to represent the strength of femininity, which grants them luck and extends the lives of their spouses. Currently, the ceremony has changed into a pleasant event when even single women and men participate in the celebration by dancing to the "Dhaki" drummers' beats.
