President Mukherjee conducts rituals at hometown.

IANSMirati, Birbhum, West Bengal, October 21, 2012 :: President Pranab Mukherjee rendered priestly duties on Sunday, donning the special puja robes, and performed customary Mahasaptami rituals for the Durga puja at his ancestral home in West Bengal’s Birbhum district. Accompanied by wife Shuvra, Mukherjee arrived at his ancestral residence in Mirati village  from his sister’s house in Kirnahar early in the morning to start the Puja celebrations.

The ‘Nabapatrika snan-o-sthapan’, which is the ritual to install the idol of the deity, was performed by Mukherjee’s son Abhijit. Previously the custom was carried out by Mukherjee but this time he only walked up to the canal where the traditional ‘Kola bou’ (tender banana plant) was bathed early in the morning.

After the ‘Pran Prathistha’, or giving life to the deity, Mukherjee chanted hymns and did the Chandipath. The Chandipath was done inside an enclosure and camera persons were not allowed inside.

The Mahasaptami puja rituals concluded with an ‘arati’ which Mukherjee conducted wearing silk dhoti and a silken stole draped around his shoulders.

During the arati, he sought blessings for all. “I wish and pray to god to bless everybody,” he said.

Villagers in large number gathered to see Mukherjee perform his maiden Durga puja after becoming the president of the country.

The rituals were conducted by Mukherjee amid elaborate security arrangements.

For years, the veteran leader has been conducting the Durga Puja rituals at Mukherjee Bhawan, and has steadfastly stuck to the routine by taking out time during the festival despite his busy schedule as in charge of various constitutional and political posts.

The president was later to meet students of his alma mater, Kirnahar Shib Chandra High School, at the nearby Kirnahar town. He would inaugurate a permanent exhibition “Pranab’s School – School’s Pranab” showcasing different phases of his life.

Mukherjee touched down in his native village, some 170 km from Kolkata, on Saturday evening.

He will return to Kolkata Oct 23 evening before returning to Delhi.

    At least now, at this ripe age, Pranab got an opportunity to repent for the hundreds of lies he told the Parliament/ Public in order to help UPA survive many scams. HE knows within himself how the cash for scam was arranged with his knowledge, Mukesh Ambani bringing the cash as summoned by Manmohan SIngh, the cash taken to Ahmed Patel and the night long adventure of Amar Singh and Ahmed Patel to buy out the MP-s each @ Rs.25 to 50 Cr.!!   Even SOmnath Chatterjee would not hold an impartial enquiry and entrusted the same to Congress leaders, the thieves themselves given the responsibility to find the truth
