Former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly Impersonated Himself As A Sikh To Attend Durga Puja

Ganguly wrote: “I am so hooked to the Pujas that I make it a point to always accompany the deity on her final ride. In Bengali, there is a semi-tragic word for it – bisharjon. This is when the deity is immersed in the Ganga. The scene is amazing – the energy is sky-high, the crowds full of joy and sorrow at seeing Durga Ma going away, it’s truly memorable.”

“The area around the river is so crowded that once, during my Indian captaincy days, I decided to go disguised as one of Harbhajan’s tribe. Yes, disguised as a sardarji.”

Police Recognized Sourav

Ganguly added: “I was not allowed on the truck by the police and had to follow it in our car with my daughter, Sana. As the car reached the Babughat area the police inspector peered in through the window, looked closely at me and smiled gently in recognition. I was embarrassed but asked him to keep my secret.”

“The escapade was worth it. The immersion scene around the river is just indescribable. You have to see it to understand it. Durga Maa, after all, comes only once a year.”
