Celebrate Navratri In Gujarat To Feel The Essence Of Goddess Durga’s Blessings, Power And Presence!

Navratri. I wish I could ever express my deepest most feeling to narrate what this festival mean to me. Indeed, this festival has a special place in the heart of every Gujarati. For me, it has meaning lies in my personality and character. The reason being I often get engrossed in this ever enchanting environment is its mystical impact. Pure energy, sheer positivity, vividity of colors, and above all the fragrances that only I can smell. Besides anything else, Dandiya or Garba (or whatever way you pronounce) has different connotations. It is because the night long dance throws all negative vibes out and reincarnates the body, the mind, and the soul.

5The festival of Navratri in Gujarat is a perfect blend of trend and tradition. The main highlight of this festival of nine nights is the folk dance of Gujarat, Garba. During Navratri, a lamp is kept in an earthen pot with multiple holes as a symbol of ‘MatruShakti’ (mother energy) and is worshipped. Each day begins with Aarti of nine forms of Goddess Shakti. Though it would not be wrong to say that the whole world dances to the beats of Garba, but nowhere is this grand event celebrated with as much zeal as in Gujarat.

1Though Navratri is celebrated all over Gujarat, few places would definitely score high over others for being exceptional in their own rights. Ahmedabad observes Navratri with amazing grace and grandeur. It is Gujarat’s most important city and a near perfect mix of modernity and culture. During Navratri, Amdavdi’s dance and sway to the mystic tunes of Garba immersed in devotion.

4A fascinating thing during Navratri is the unbeatable spirit of ‘Khelaiyas’ (Garba Players). The police restriction of 12 AM doesn’t stop them from enjoying all night long. People move from party plots to ‘Sheri Garba’ (street garba) or visit Manekchowk – a street food haven that is open till wee hours every night, to have the most delicious dishes like Pav Bhaji, Gwalia Dosa, Chocolate sandwich or Malai kulfi.

3The garba fans start traditional dress and ornament shopping preparations months ahead of the festival. Every year, Navratri brings in innovation in music, choreography, costumes and is enthralled with the beauty of tradition. During Navratri, the city of Ahmedabad looks colorful and magical. The true essence of life is that we should celebrate each moment with joy and excitement and Navratri teaches us that.
