  MANOSHA PUJA
 
 

Devi Manosha, the patron saint of serpents and snake catchers, is supposed to be the daughter of Lord Shiva. Her popularity is somewhat restricted to Bengal but even then she holds a high position in the Hindu belief. Manosha Mongol Kavya, a theological piece, composed in 14th century forms the ground for the Goddess. The story of Chand Saudagar, the ardent follower of Lord Shiva, is the lead character of the myth, who after denying to worship Devi Manosha earns her curses. He looses his shipping fleet, his near and dear ones including his seven sons who die of snake- bite but even then, he refuses to show respect to the goddess.

 
 

At last, after the death of his youngest son Lakhinder in his wedding night, the widow daughter-in-law, Behula, accompanies her dead husband to heaven, pleases the Gods and vows that she will make her father-in-law worship Devi Manosha in return of the lives of her relatives. Behula returns to earth and manages to convince Chand who finally falls for her words. He worships Devi Manosha and thus the practice started. Devi Manosha is worshipped out of faith and also out of fear.
