Hi, all friends

'Nav' means 'nine' and 'ratri' means 'night', thus, 'Navratri' means 'nine nights'. There

are many legends attached to the conception of Navratri like all Indian festivals but

all of them are related to Goddess Shakti (Hindu Mother Goddess) and her various

forms. Though it is one of the most celebrated festivals of Hindu calendar, it holds

special significance for Gujratis and Bengalis and one can see it in the zeal and fervor

of the people with which they indulge in the festive activities of the season.

Goddess Durga represents the power of the Supreme Being that preserves moral order and righteousness in the creation. The Sanskrit word Durga means a fort or a place that is protected and thus difficult to reach. Durga, also called Divine Mother, protects mankind from evil and misery by destroying evil forces such as selfishness, jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, and ego.
