Had been busy with the durga puja celebrations at my husbands ancestral place.
The Navratris ( Nine nights) concluded recently , it’s the 9 day festival before the Indian festival dusshera or Vijaya Dashami where in the Goddess Parvathi/Ma Durga ( the consort of the Hindu God Lord Shiva) is worshipped in her different forms.
Navaratri is celebrated four times a year, the one which recently concluded is the most important one called as Sharada Navratri.
Finally on the last day Dashami( 10th day) is celebrated, as a tribute to Lord Rama killing Ravana after taking blessing from the Goddess Durga.
Confusing right?? Il come up with a post shortly explaining the story behind it.
Since I was busy visiting our ancestral place in West Bengal called Ranaghat , where the celebrations started from Sashthi ( the 6th day ) never got time to open wordpress.
I will be posting a series of events shortly, Just to share the rich cultures of India and our traditions.
Hope you all have a good Sunday and a great week ahead.
