Navratri Celebration by Red & White Group of InstituteHitesh
One of the most awaited festivals in the colorful state of Gujarat is Navratri. Celebrated on the first nine days of Ashwin month, devotees keep fast for 9 days and worship Maa Shakti. In the evening, an earthen pot with holes and diyas inside, also known as “Garbi”, is lighted and women perform arti with it. During Navratri, Garba dance and Dandiya Raas are popular forms of dances performed by both men and women, wearing their traditional dresses.
Especially for Gujaratis, Navaratri is the most favorite festival because of Garba and Dandiya.
In this festival, all the people came together wearing colorful Chaniya Cholies and Kediya as a traditional wear for Navaratri and play Garba and Dodhiya around the Photo or statue of Mataji for the nine nights.
People celebrate this festival in societies, schools, colleges, according to their arrangement. There are also some groups who arrange the Ramzat where all people come together and enjoy different types of Garba & Dandiya and as some organizations held competitions and distribute prizes.
