The Best Navratri Events in Pune
In cities like Pune, Navratri is synonymous with dandiya and garba dance parties. Navratri, as the name suggests, spans nine days. In the western part of the country these nine days are full of festivities, food and fun. In Gujarat and Maharashtra, Navratri is synonymous with dandiya and garba dance parties. Days before the festival, enthusiasts practice moves and source the right kind of clothes in order to put on a fabulous show at Navratri events. Veterans of garba events as well as newcomers will find a whole host of choices on BookMyShow, including major nights headlined by singers like Falguni Pathak, the undisputed queen of garba, and Parthiv Gohil. Some of the songs you can expect to dance to are evergreen hits such as 'Sanedo', 'Pankhida', 'Kesariyo Rang Tane Lagyo', 'Dholida Dhol Re Vagad' and 'Odhni Odhu'. Fashion is a big part of Navratri celebrations. The clothing markets of Pune are full of mirror-work chaniya cholis, kurtis, saris and accessories. Each year new trends emerge from these markets and are seen at dandiya-garba raas events.
Navratri is marked in various ways across the country. For instance, Bengalis celebrate Durga puja during this period. As the legend goes, Durga battled the demon Mahishasur for nine days, killing him on the tenth day, which is known as Dussehra. In Tamil Nadu, it's the time for Golu, a festival in which families worships dolls representing the devi arranged on nine steps. In general, devotees worship the feminine divine spirit during Navratri. In Karnataka, Dussehra is a big deal and marked with grand processions. But it's perhaps most boisterously celebrated by the Gujarati community.
