“Navaratri” or “Navaaratri”, is a synchrony of two words “nava” (meaning nine) and “ratri” (meaning night). Clubbed together, it translates to nine nights. The festival of Navaratri, which spreads over 9 nights and 10 days, is one of the most revered festivals in hinduism and celebrated during the autumn season. It lays importance on the worship of Goddess Durga or Shakti, which represents the energy of the universe, in her nine different forms.
Of the four kinds of Navaratris Chaitra Navaratri, Paush navratri, Magha navratri, and Sharad navratri celebrated in india throughout the year, Maha Navaratri or Sharad Navaratri is considered as the most auspicious.
When it comes to the importance of Navaratri, like every other Indian festival, the core message remains the same the victory of good over evil but the stories and the narratives differ. Even across the geography of india, while the eastern and north-eastern states refer to the celebrations as durga puja, for the northern and western belt, it is a nine-night festival that is observed to celebrate the victory of Rama over Ravana.
