Bengal Bioscope : Dhunachi


Dhunachi, an incense burner ; an integral part of a Bengali puja. The smoke is produced by burning choir and frankincense (dhuno/resin) . Earthen dhunachi (pot) is more popular in the households than pots made of brass. During Durga Puja, 'dhunachi-naach' ( free-style dance with dhunachi) is a common event conducted by puja pandals in the evening.
