Here are 7 things you must avoid during Navratri.
Navratri is one of the major festivals in India and it is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm and joy. This festival is celebrated all over our country in different ways but with a lot of splendor and faith. This year Navratri has started on October 17 and will end on October 25.
During the festival, people do fast, pray to the nine incarnations of Mother Durga, and follow rituals and traditions attached to the festival, the other highlight of this occasion is playing Garba and Dandiya. However, this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the new way of celebrating Navratri is through virtual celebration to avoid the gathering of people. ‘Navratri’ is derived from two Sanskrit words- ‘Nava’ meaning nine and ‘Ratri’ meaning night. Although, most of the people who worship Goddess Durga are not aware of the dos and don’ts.
