Every single festival has its importance and specific type of rituals related to them, most of the festivals are celebrated by everyone no matter which culture they belong to. One such festival is “Durga Puja” called “Navratri”. For ages time we heard the meaning of Navratri, in Sanskrit “Nava” means nine, and “Ratri” means night. Navratri is a time of auspiciousness, fun, and excitement. It comes with a certain vibe in the air, with everyone having a high festive spirit, we can observe a stage setting, prayers, plays, dramas, fasting, puja, and roads dangled up with colorful lights. The Nine days are dedicated to worshipping the nine avatars of the goddess Durga.
Apart from a high festive spirit, clothes also bear high importance during Navratri festivals. Each day of Navratri has a dedicated color with its significance. It is a belief that wearing different colors on different days of the Navratri will please goddess Durga which is considered auspicious.
