On the last day of these holidays the tourists were amazed to see an extraordinarily large crowd of men, women and children consisting of more than a hundred thousand individuals, forming a procession and following a big idol which appeared to be made of silver and bedecked in jewels which must have a cost a very large sum of money. This was the idol of the goddess Durga. The Americans took a very keen interest in the procession which impressed them deeply.
