To Vrish, Tanni and others from the Bangla - land,

Why are Lakshmi and Saraswati are considered Durga's daughters? Are there any interesting local legends to explain this? As in the case of Ganapati, did Durga create them Herself?

I have an enquiry about todays precap.
 
In the precap Shiva says that aaj main tume "mahmangi" hone ka addekar deta hoon. Now I might not be saying it right but what does "mahmangi" mean?
 
thanks in advance

Vinaayak . 

Because Parvati was able to create him w/o  her husband's help. ( Vi - without and Naayak- Husband / Lord

I just saw your response now - thanks for answering this.  So this is what she called him?

I asked Tan about your question - b'cos I myself don't know the answer to this one.  Despite being a Bong, I happen to believe in Lakshmi being the daughter of Varuna/Varuni, while Saraswati was created by Brahma.  I don't believe multiple versions of conflicting stories, so certainly not this one about Lakshmi & Saraswati being daughters of Durga.  For this serial, just imagine a daughter doing the varan for her mom during the latter's grihapravesh Wacko

It's Wamangi, wife sits on husband's left side near the heart, that's why she is called Wamangi. Wam means left in Sanskrit.

Thank you.

Being a Wamangi happens only after the marriage.

Just my guess. Based on what ' vinaayak' means. There doesn't seem any other reason why he should bear that name.

I understand that regional variations will not stand in front of puranic scrutiny. That's why I asked what is the local "Bong" legend behind Lakshmi and Saraswati being Durga's daughters. Even a full length cartoon has been made showing Karthik, Ganesh, Lakshmi and Saraswati as siblings.

Further, in the "Bong" tradition, Ganapati is married to the Banana plant, right? And this place on the fifth day of Navaratri, right? So any stories on this, as well ?

Actually, a whole bunch of detail has been posted in this thread below by Debipriya & Urmila about Durga Puja, Lakshmi Puja & Kali Puja.  Reading it, I happened to have asked your question months ago, but nobody seemed to know Unhappy


Anyway, I'll see if anyone else knows.
