  • Navaratri-Why it is celebrate 9days with 9devis and 9colors

Navaratri in India will begin on 25th March and ends on 2nd April

Navaratri is the festival of Hindu. It is the festival of nine nights and ten days. It is celebrated in the month of September and October. Every Year we are Celebrated Four Navaratris

In Sanskrit, the word Navaratri means nine nights. In English, it is spelled as Navarathri or Navratri. This festival is celebrated in the honor of the divine feminine Devi Durga. According to the Hindu calendar, this festival is celebrated in the month of Ashvin which is typically the starting of the bright half of the Hindu calendar. This festival is celebrated in many different regions of India and in many different places there is a different belief for celebrating this festival. The most observed Navratri is Sharada Navratri among other Navaratri. There are total four Navaratri in a year and with great joy and enthusiasm, people used to celebrate this festival.

Happy Navaratri Day

People used to dress in a traditional manner including men and women. Each night there used to be a classical dance at many places in cities. This dance is called Garba. Both boys and girls dance together on classical music. In some places, there is also competition between boys and girls to see who wins. And who can dance better whether a boy or a girl. And a person who wins in this competition prizes is given to him/her. Each night of the nine days there used to be competition and every night mostly the prizes are different for every night. Not only this there is also a huge set up of markets including things like traditional books, photos, and statues of Devi Durga and Lord Ganesha and many different items of Jewellery and household stationery. Including all this there is also a huge set up of lighting on the roads and stages are decorated and the statues of the Devi Durga is placed in it. During this nine days, pooja is held on the stage and elder people used to tell the story of the Devi Durga. In a traditional way, this pooja is called as Durga Puja. In many other states of India, this Durga Puja is synonymous with Navratri. It is believed that the goddess Durga fights with the demon of buffalo called Yamraj in order to restore Dharma.

After the nine days of Navarathri, the last day is the most important day. The tenth day which is also called the Vijayadashami or Dussehra. On this day the statues of the Devi Durga is immersed in water. People used to dance and there was also a band party whose job is to play music. On this same day, people used to burn the statues of the evil god Ravana indicating the victory of good over evil. While burning of the statue of the evil god Ravana there is also a fireworks celebration.
