The Festival of Navratri
Navratri is an annual Hindu festival. It is celebrated in the bright half of the Hindu calendar month Ashvin, which typically falls in the Gregorian months of September and October. The festival spans nine nights (and ten days).
The festival of Dusshera (also called Vijaya Dashmi) always falls on the 10th and last day of Navratri. Navratri is celebrated all over India, especially in northern India.
This festival is dedicated to Goddess Durga and her nine avatars and their win over evil, specifically the demon Mahishasura.
Each day of the nine days represents one of the avatars and each day has a specific colour assigned to it. Celebrations on Navratri include stage decorations, recital of the legend, Ramlilas, and chanting of the scriptures of Hinduism.
