On sixth day of Navratri, the colour associated with Goddess Katyayani is maroon. Devotees are advised to offer shringar items and vermillion to the goddess. According to the Vamana Purana, she was created from the combined energies of the gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva when their anger at the demon Mahishasura manifested itself in the form of energy rays. It is said that worshiping Katyayani removes ‘manglik dosha’ of devotees and unmarried girls also keep a fast on this day hoping to get husband of their choice.
