PM Modi greets people on seven-day Kharchi Pooja festival of Tripura
Greeting the people of Tripura on the start of the auspicious Kharchi Pooja, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated in a release, "Greetings to everyone, especially the people of Tripura on the start of the auspicious Kharchi Pooja. May Chaturdash Devata bless everyone with happiness, good health and prosperity."

Kharchi puja, a Hindu festival was performed on July 10 in Agartala - the capital of Tripura. The 14 gods forming the dynasty deity of the Tripuri people were worshiped and the festival will continue for week as royal Puja.

The festival is held on the eighth day of the new moon in July to worship the Earth and attracts thousands of people in the local temple premises which are attended by thousands of people.

The fourteen gods are carried to river Saidra and bathed by the members of Chantai to be brought back to the temple. A large fair and a cultural program are organized during the festival period.

The real message of the festival is to treat the Earth as mother and feminine divine.
