Navratri is the time where the entire country comes together and celebrates a festival filled with devotion, dedication and enjoyment. It may be a Hindu festival but Navratri invites everyone to embrace its sacredness and seek Ma Ambe’s blessings and indulge in an occasion of fun and frolic. Navratri is akin to Durga puja celebrated in Bengal. In Navratri we worship different forms of Devi Durga like Maa Sherawali, Maa Gauri and Maa Ambe. This is a 10 days festival and usually is celebrated in the autumn season.
In Gujarat, Navratri is celebrated with Dandiya and Garba and the DJs host Dandiya nights where people dance to their heart’s content.
