It is to mention that Nagaon Bengali Sanmilani has been maintaining the ancient customs since from its beginning which is witnessed at the day of Dashami when the devotees and the members of the organizing committee on their bare feet carry the Maa Durga along with other idols on their shoulder to the river bank.

The rainfall for past three days hampered the progress of decoration works as well dampened the festive sprit.
