It is that time of the year again when Hindus gear up to celebrate the auspicious festival of Chaitra Navratri. The nine-day festival starts on the first day of the first month (Chaitra) of the Hindu Luni-Solar calendar and falls in March or April. Thus, this Navratri is known as Chaitra Navratri or Vasanta Navratri. Ram Navami, the birthday of Lord Ram, also falls on the ninth day of the Navratri festivities. All nine days of the Chaitra Navratri are dedicated to the worship of the nine avatars of Maa Durga or Goddess Shakti - Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalaratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri. Additionally, different colours are also associated with each day and hold significance. Keep scrolling to read more about this.
