Celebrations, glamorous outfits along with traditional music and Garba may just be ready to make their way for nine days of celebration. Yes, you guessed correctly, we are talking about Navratri, the cultural festival of nine days that will soon take the entire nation by storm and leave us with synchronised dance steps. The festival celebrated by many states across the country is a symbol of victory of good over evil. The term Navratri finds its origins in the Sanskrit words ‘Nava’ and ‘Ratri’, translating to Nine and Nights, respectively.
The celebrations consist of raas-garba and dandiya, a traditional dance form in Gujarat. This is a festival when people gather together to enjoy some colourful nights full of enjoyment. People wait all around the year for this time as this is the time to flaunt yourselves and have fun with your group. Whether it's a ladies' gang, a group of colleagues or friends or a workplace, irrespective of age and gender, we can find the festive vibes around full of Navratri colours.
Let us take you through a journey of the nine colours of Navratri that highlight and emphasise the festival and celebrations. Moreover, if you are wondering, here’s how you can bring these colours to your Navratri celebrations as per Navratri days colours.
