Happy Durga Ashtami

Adda247 Family wishes you all a very happy Durga Ashtami. Goddess Durga is the epitome of energy and may she enlighten your path helping you achieve your goal. This time Navratri is special because these days are your days to work as hard as you can for your dream as all important examinations are lined up - IBPS Clerk Prelims, IBPS PO Mains, Indian Bank PO Mains, NABARD DA Mains and more.

There is a famous folklore of goddess Durga associated with this festival. Once as it is said was a demon named Mahishasur who doomed our mother earth and was lost in his pride of power. He dedicated his time to rigorous penance directed the creator of all creatures, Lord Brahma. And his wish was granted and in reward, he attained great power. He was powerful but never thought wisely to channelise his energy in a positive direction and indulged in gross misconduct. To bring an end to his atrocities Goddess Durga decided to teach him and the world a lesson. Devi fought with him for nine days which seemed an endless and ferocious battle. Deciding to end the battle there, the Goddess then summoned her to discuss (given to her by Vishnu), that was a clone of the Sudarsana-Chakra. She launched it at Mahishasura and beheaded him. Thus, the terrible buffalo-demon, who had terrorized the Gods with boons obtained from Lord Brahma, met his end at the hands of Durga. There is more to learn from this story.

We all have our fair chances at our fate, it is up to us, how we comprehended those powers the Almighty had bestowed upon us. It’s up to us how we channelise our energies in right time. And YOU have your time now. It’s your- 'make it or break it- chance' for becoming a Probationary Officer, your goal of a secure job in the banking sector. 

So, celebrate this festive season whole heatedly along with working on your goal.

If you’re thinking that you’ll start practicing well for IBPS from tomorrow onwards, you’ll not be just wasting one day but you’ll be moving far away from your dream of getting a government job. Remember lakhs of other students are your competition and they are practicing day in day out to defeat you. By wasting a day or two you will be strengthening their chances against you. Is that really what you would wish for? If NO, then get started NOW.
