What is Navratri?
Navratri, meaning nine nights, is a Hindu festival which celebrates the nine forms of goddess Durga. Although there are four Navratri but Sharada Navaratri which falls during the post-monsoon is considered most auspicious. This festival celebrates the victory of the goddess Durga over the buffalo demon.
