The nine days of celebration or Navratri 2021 is finally here again! This time of the year is loaded with joy, good food and beautiful outfits. The word ‘Navratri’ implies nine nights which are widely celebrated all across the nation. This marks the beginning of the festive season in India which is followed by Dusshera and Diwali, two major festivals on the Indian calendar. Navratri is one of the very few festivals which are performed across pan India. In the East, it is celebrated in the form of Durga Puja. In the west, people zealously solemnize these nine days in the form of Garba and Dandiya. Whereas, the northern and southern part keep it plain and simple as ‘Navratri’. These nine days best exhibit the cultural diversity of the nation. Unfortunately, this year as well, it won't be the same as it used to be due to Coronavirus. There might not be huge pandals and dandiya nights this year but that doesn't mean you don't deck up. Looking beautiful is your right and you must exercise it especially during the biggest festival season of the year. We have brought to you the colour scheme for Navratri 2021.
