Women in Bengal celebrate Sindoor Khela, which means 'vermillion game'. The festival is celebrated on Vijayadashami, the last day of the Durga Puja, during which women smear each other with sindoor.
Upon the completion of the ritual worship on the same day, married Bengali Hindu women apply sindoor on the forehead and feet of the goddess and offer sweets to her. Thereafter, the women put sindoor on each other's faces and offer sweets to each other.
