The festival of Sharad Navaratri is being marked from September 29 in the country. All nine manifestations of Goddess Durga Maa are respected during this nine-day festival. The last day or the ninth day of Navratri will be dedicated to Goddess Siddhidhatri. This form of Navadurga is said to fulfil the divine aspirations and completes the mundane. One of the prominent ways of marking all the nine days of the festival is the colour chart that is followed throughout. Each day women wear specific coloured clothes, the same in which idol of Goddess Durga is also draped. The colour for day nine of Navratri is peacock green.

Goddess Siddhidhatri gets her name from Siddhi which means supernatural power or meditative ability, and Dhatri which means giver or awarder. So there is a belief that she blesses all her devotees with her power. It is also said that one part of the idol of Lord Shiva is of this goddess. Lord Shiva is said to have attained all siddhis by worshipping her. This Goddess is seated on a Lotus and her vehicle is a lion.
