Especially in eastern and central parts of the country the worship of Durga or Kali or other forms of the Mother like Basanti or Jagaddhatri form principal social and religious occasions. Hindu festivals related to Mother worship are of a much greater magnitude than the worship of any male deity except the major deities like Shiva or Vishnu or major avatars of the Hindu pantheon like Rama or Krishna.
