The celebration of Navratri garba is in the honor of the Goddess of power or Shakti. Since this festival is celebrated for a period of 9 days and that too in the night, therefore the festival is called Navratri. The word navratri in Sanskrit means 9 nights. ‘Nava’ means nine and ‘Ratri’ means night. 9 different forms of goddess are worshipped on each day. The celebrations in the night begin with the customary and traditional Aarti. The highlight of the festivities is the garba dance, which is performed by the people from all lifestyles. This usually goes on till about midnight. The dancers gather in the grounds hours before the event in order to get the best view from their place of sitting. The dancers are attired in the traditional dress and play navratri dandiya-raas with ‘dandiya’ or wooden sticks.
