Navratri Colours 2017 : Nine Colours For Nine Days

By TGB Desk / On September 21st, 2017

If there is one festival that celebrates the woman power and feminity, it is Dussehra Navratri. The literal meaning of ‘Navratri’ in Sanskrit is nine nights. Every year, during Navratri, the Mother Goddess is propitiated and worshiped in her nine avatars. During Navratri, each day is dedicated to the worship of a specific manifestation of the Mother Goddess (Maa Durga). Everyday Goddess Durga is decorated in a distinct Alankaaram (attire). As per the custom, women are required to adorn themselves in a different colored outfit and accessories for the divine blessings of Goddess Durga during Navratri. The color palette of Navratri changes every year. The color of the first day of Navratri would be determined based on the day of the week on which the festival begins. And the next eight days follow a fixed color palette.
