A festival that needs no introduction, the Navratri, is celebrated over 9 days and nights with great fervor and celebrations across the country. It’s that time of the year when children go on vacation, offices work less and people bond over rituals and sweets. Besides the festivities, the Navratri, like the 1000 Arabian Nights, also tells tales of goddesses with extraordinary and outwardly powers. The nine days are distributed amongst the incarnations of the three main goddesses, Durga, Laxmi and Saraswati. And in praying to them, one is said to be blessed with similar virtues to progress on one’s spiritual path. Each day is also represented with a colour, which are represented in the following images.
