This marks the beginning of the festive season in India which is followed by Dusshera and Diwali, two major festivals on the Indian calendar. Navratri is one of the very few festivals which are performed across pan India. In the East, it is celebrated in the form of Durga Puja. In the west, people zealously solemnize these nine days in the form of Garba and Dandiya. Whereas, the northern and southern part keep it plain and simple as ‘Navratri’.
