(( jadui sone ki durga ma ki murti….navratri))
Narration… Sangeeta used to live with her daughter Nisha in a hut.
Nisha..((Seeing the idol of Durga Maa in a pandal while picking up the garbage with her mother)) Mother why is the idol of Durga Maa kept here..
Sangeeta….((with love)) Daughter, Navratri is starting from tomorrow.. That’s why people worship by placing idols of Maa Durga in pandals from place to place….
Nisha… Mother what is this Navratri..
Narration… Sangeeta tells her daughter Nisha all about Navratras… by listening to Sangeeta..
Nisha… Mother, then I too will worship for nine days by keeping the idol of mother…
Sangeeta..((Laughter)) son where will it be from us..sometimes we don’t even have money to eat..then the goods of worship..and where will the food for nine girls come from..
Nisha (( crying)) I don’t know mother, I have to worship mother for nine days..
Sangeeta..((scolding)) You, quietly go home…
Nisha…((by looking out)) Mother, mother, mother, get up, see that something is shining there..
Sangeeta…(((Gets up from sleep and goes to that shining thing..and lifts it in hand..)) Oh this is a gold idol of Durga Maa…
Nisha..((Cheering up)) Is there a gold idol of Durga Maa?
Sangeeta…. ((Cheerfully)) Yes Nisha, this is a gold idol… by selling it we will get a lot of money…
Nisha… no mother we will not sell it… I will worship this Durga maa gold idol…
Narration… Sangeeta first understands Nisha with love and then with anger…But Nisha doesn’t listen to Sangeeta.
Nisha.((Keeping the gold idol and with folded hands)) O Durga Maa, from today I will worship you…
Sangeeta..((Standing near Nisha)) Oh mother, this child of mine is innocent..forgive it…we will worship you as it is in our bus…(((holding Nisha’s hand)) ) Come on Nisha, now let’s go to our work…
Narration.. and both of them go out on the task of picking up their junk..
Nisha..((from Sangeeta)) Maa, let’s go home.. Evening worship of Durga Maa has to be done…
Narration…. both reach home and worship the golden idol of Maa Durga…..and go to sleep at night.. then wake up in the morning
Nisha..((Durga goes to the gold idol of Maa..and is happy)) Mother, mother come soon..look at this another gold idol of another mother..
Sangeeta..(((Comes running.. looking at the gold idol)) oh this is a miracle…..(((with folded hands to the idol of Durga maa)) Oh mother, we are blessed with this grace of yours. Done.. your two forms are of gold, today in my house..
Nisha..((getting happy)) Let’s go to work after worshiping mother..we have to collect money for girl worship..
Sangeeta… oh yes..i forgot..let’s go
Narration… and both of them again leave for their work… and in the evening again comes home after getting tired, then after worshiping and goes to sleep. A new gold idol of Durga Maa would have been kept..Eight days passed by doing this and on the eighth day at night.
Nisha… Mother, this is the day of Maa Durga. Where does gold idol come from..
Sangeeta… I don’t even know this daughter…
Nisha… Mother today why don’t we wake up at night and see from where is this new gold idol coming every day..
Narration… Both of them lie on their bed looking at the gold idol of Durga Maa. ..and out of it another gold idol of Durga Maa emerges.. immediately both of them get up….
Sangeeta…((While crying near the golden idol of Durga Maa)) Oh mother, this is your wonderful miracle.. You have blessed our hut by sitting in your nine forms in this hut…

Sangeeta…((from a woman in the building)) Madam, please send your baby girl to my house for Kanya Poojan…
Aurat… (( reprimanding)) Hey go from here, my baby girl will not go to your cottage. The one who picks up the garbage.
Narration… Sangeeta is driven away by speaking bad words..Sangeeta comes home..
Sangeeta..(( saddened by Nisha)) daughter we don’t want to send our girl child to the poor’s house..now how to do girl worship
