Taki in West Bengal is a town of green paddies and greener ponds on the banks of the Ichamati river separating India and Bangladesh. Like the rest of the state, it gets enthusiastic during the Durga Puja celebrations every year. At the end of Durga Puja, on Vijaya Dashami, the Ichamati river at Taki, offers a unique spectacle when boats crammed with people from both India and Bangladesh converge to immerse their respective idols. The sight of the culturally similar people on both sides of the border together going through the rituals of immersion of the idols, keeping aside all worries and monotonous daily chores, participated in the almost week-long extravaganza, which is described as the largest community festival in the world by the West Bengal Tourism.
