A NEW YEAR WITH A FRESH NEW OUTLOOK

When this double rainbow appeared over Sri Ma Dakshineswari Kali’s temple last December, we were stunned by the perfect beauty of Mother Nature. The darkness that had shaded our minds all last year drifted up and merged into the sky. We are hopeful that Covid-19 will pass like the rainstorm and yield abundance, beauty and joy for all.
