Very nice study. Why did you miss out the thekua-banana-nariyel-phal dali? I always check out on the thekua first for my teeth are no longer what they were.Bengali equivalent of Chhat (shashthi), celebrated almost concurrently, is Itu puja. Itu is a corruption of Sanskrit 'ritu' (season). It was more of a feminine vrata, with similar offerings to Surya. I had witnessed what must have been the last few ever some 60 years ago.
Thank you Sir for sharing such an informative piece. Ya, I have missed to upload the Dali, as the click had a little noise.Also, happy to share with you that I had crunched a few thekuas this time.
