Navratri begins this week..(much more than a reason to get dressed up!)
One of the most epic festivities of Hindu culture starts this week. Like most gujaratis i’ve been attending the festival since i was very young. Love raas garbas and the feeling of spirituality that is gained from being apart of the whole thing is just amazing but the truth is i’ve been feeling a little distant from the whole thing for the past few years, i don’t know if i’m the only one that feels this way but the spiritual aspect of it seems lost somewhere behind pretty dresses and social agendas. Hence i have decided to take a slightly different approach to navrati this year. All i wanted to say is that their is a wealth of spirituality behind the 9 days which shouldnt be forgotten ..ok i think thats enough of my lecture (I’ve got lots of garbas floating around in my head now :)- happy Navrati to all!
