Mahalaya, which indicates the beginning of Devi-Paksha and the end of the Pitri-Paksha (the Shradh or the mourning period) is an auspicious day for Bengalis, who celebrate it with much devotion. Mahalaya is observed seven days before the Durga Puja.
The very famous Lal paar saree or simply the saree with a red border is a part of the life of Bengali women. Especially, when it is Mahalaya, it is an age-old tradition for Bengali women to wear a Lal par saree with much love and grandeur. It is because red and white sarees are considered very auspicious. In a lal paar saree, White stands for purity while red symbolises fertility.
