Gujarat’s Navratri Festival, is “a circle of ecstasy” that throbs non-stop for nine nights and millions of fantastically costumed devotees swaying in a fusion of dance and devotion. Although this festival is celebrated throughout India, nowhere is it performed with more panache and favor than in Gujarat.
The significance of Navratri is offering devotion to Goddess Amba (Durga), who is believed to exist in many forms. These Goddesses are believed to be known as “Shakti” as the tales narrate their power over killing of demons. Parvati, the wife of Shiva is said to have taken different forms of Goddesses. Devotees perform the ‘devi-sthaapna’ in their homes wherein they invite the Goddesses and perform ‘Pooja-Path’ with fasting for nine days.
Every year, Navratri festival brings in innovation in music, choreography, and costumes and has enthralled audience with its beauty and cultural tradition.
