The end of Durga Pooja festival is marked by the Durga Visarjan. Just with the advent of the day of Vijayadashami the immersion (Visarjan) of the statue of Goddess Durga is done early in the morning. From many years, immersion (Visarjan) is done early in the morning but if Shravan Nakshatra and Dashmi Tithi rest in the Apaharan Kaal, and then this time is the most favorable one for immersion (Visarjan). Most of the devotees break their fast only after the immersion (Visarjan).
During the festival of Durga Pooja, Sindoor Utsav is one of the different traditions celebrated in West Bengal. On the day of Vijayadashami, the ritual of playing with vermilion (sindoor) is carried out before the Durga Visarjan. On this occasion, all the married women put vermilion to each other and wish each other. Vermilion Utsav is also called as vermilion play.
