9 Outfit Inspirations to Amp Up Your Navratri Celebrations

Posted by Alok Tiwari on

Navratri, the festival of nights or divine power, is celebrated across India with its cultural significance. Navratri is a Sanskrit word, “nava” meaning nine; “ratri” meaning night. The festival is celebrated for nine nights and ten days, worshipping the nine forms of Goddess Durga or Devi, the energy of the universe.

The reason for celebrating Navratri is the victory of good over evil or the defeat of Mahishasura by Goddess Durga, who, with the power of all goddesses, defeated him. She fought with Mahishasura for nine nights and finally defeated him.

Devotees worship nine incarnations of Goddess Durga during the nine days – Shailputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skanda Mata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri and Siddhidatri.

The best part of celebrating Navratri is wearing specific-colored clothes for the nine days, each symbolizing the nature, qualities, and aspects of each avatar of goddess Durga, bringing more peace and harmony to your life.
