Navaratri is a festival dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga. The word Navaratri means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Devi are worshipped. The tenth day is commonly referred to as Vijayadashami or Dussehra. Navaratri is an important major festival and is celebrated all over India. Like any other city, Nagpur is all set to welcome and celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm.

The rhythmic clashing of dandiya sticks is central to this celebration and garba is the heart and soul of expression in these auspicious days. The women wear traditional dresses such as colourful embroidered cholis, ghagras and bandhani dupattas dazzling with mirror work and heavy jewellery. The men wear special turbans and kedias, but can range from area to area. Like with every Nagpurkar, we look forward to the hottest garba venues for this year. Here they are –
