Shardiya Navratri 2018

Navratri is a nine day festival and each day people do puja of different forms of goddess durga. This also usually coincides with the end of the rainy season. Dasara/Vijayadashami, is the tenth day of Ashwin. Here are the nine days of navratri and the name of goddess worshiped on each day. Navratri is celebrated for nine nights, beginning on the first day of the bright fortnight of the Hindu month Ashwin, roughly corresponding to dates in the Gregorian calendar in September/October. Navratri is traditionally a Hindu festival, but it’s not unheard-of to find non-Hindus having fun with their friends at a garba.
Navratri 2018 is going to begin on the 10th October and they will end on the 18th October with 19th October being the day of Vijaya Dashmi IE the day of Dussehra and 24th October of Sharad Purnima. The celebration season in India starts from the very first day of Navratri as it continues for many days and with several other festivals. Several States in India celebrate Navratri in different ways. For instance, in Gujarat the merriment of Navratri is on some other level.
Navratri is one of the holiest Hindu festivals celebrated across the country. People actually visit Gujarat during Navratri because of the amount of enjoyment there. Apart from fasting and worshiping Goddess Durga during this festival, Navratri is also popular for ‘Kanjak’ which is one of the most essential part of nine days fasting.
