India is known for its rich festivals and culture.
Many festivals are celebrated with great enthusiasm and spirituality.
One such festival is Navratri.
Navratri means nine nights. It is observed in the honor of goddess Durga.
Navratri brings along with it a gush of positivity, happiness, fun and frolic.
Nine days of this festival is observed by praying to goddess Durga followed by doing the 'garba'and 'dandiya' at night with everyone. Girls, boys, men and women of all ages dress their best for the festival.
However, this festival is not restricted to just praying and dancing but also preparing, eating and sharing yummy food.
