Happy days are here again!!(Navratri aa gayi)

If you’re a Gujju, then you are definitely on Cloud Nine now.

Why? Because the days of dancing are here i.e. The Navratri.

We all worship one God or the other. We have so many festivals of Janmastami and Ganesh Puja and Shivratri, in the names of all the known Gods. Similarly, Navratri is celebrated for Durga Maa and her different forms. She takes various forms in each nine days of Navratri to save her devotees from the evils.

Its celebrated every year and this year will not be any different.

I am a resident of Cuttack and we celebrate it at Gujurati school there. We play Garba and Dandia for 3 hours each day and hymn in the name of our Gods.

We make a sculpture of Durga Maa with the Tiger and play Garba infront of her. The below is the pic of this year’s sculpture.

We all Gujjus get together for these 9 days and have a lot of Fun.
Durga-Asthami(8th day) is the biggest and most celebrated day.

So, guys put on your dancing shoes and the field is calling you.

Happy Navratri,
Darshith.
