Navratri is a 9 days festival that falls four times a year. But majorly celebrated are two famous ones called “Chaitra Navratri and Sharad Navaratri”. Chaitra Navratri falls in the month of March-April and Sharad Navratri falls in the month of September-October and ends with Dussehra. During these nine days, nine forms of shakti/Devi are worshipped. For devotees it is a time of religious reflection and fasting and also, a time for dancing and feasting. During these nine days temples and households are decorated with flowers and lights. Generally the first third of the festival focuses on aspects of the Goddess Durga, the second third on the Goddess Lakshmi, and the final third on the Goddess Sarasvati. The nine avatars of goddess Durga (namely Shailputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kaalratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri). The most popular ritual is “Kanya Puja”, which takes place on the eighth or ninth day. On these days, nine young girls are dressed as the nine goddesses celebrated during Navratri and are worshiped with ritual foot washing and given offerings such as food and clothing. It is believed that Goddess Durga fought with demon Mahishasur continuously for nine days and on 10th day he was beheaded, which is celebrated as Vijay Dashmi.
