The soil is known as “Punya Maati” and it originates from the Nishiddho Palli or Red-light regions.

 

  • People consider it to be the “Purest” Soil

When a man goes into a prostitute’s home, he leaves his adherence and his purity outside the door making the soil in front of the home pure.

The priest begs for it to make the idols, it shall be touched and handed over by a prostitute only!

 

  • It is an image of female vitality

The soil is used to pay respect those ladies who have been oppressed and exploited by the society. It is to demonstrate the world that they too have potential and can be a Durga!

  • Incorporation of all the classes in the society

The afflicted segment of the society is disregarded by all and through this procedure, it makes them feel that they are also a part of the society and have a unique place in the world too.

  • To cleanse the prostitutes of their misdeeds

During this procedure of the Punya Maati, the whores are said to be cleansed of their “sins”. Counting them on in making the idols deterges them.

While taking the soil from them, the priest recites a mantra and this mantra is said to relinquish their souls. Awesome, isn’t it?

Though these prostitutes belong to an abandoned section of the society, this one festival let them come under one umbrella as devotees of God and is also included in this hypocritical society.

 

Honor them always!

Currently, in between the midways of life, I am a fun-loving person who loves to jott down everything that goes inside my mind and love to interact with people around. I treat writing as a passion and not as work. Hailing from the City of Joy, I am a girl with a mindset of changing the 'better to best' and the 'worse to worthwhile'.
