Festival is a celebration of Colours in Life too! Traditionally, along with Mother Goddess Durga statue, ladies/devotees wear 9 different colour Sari/Saree (Dress) for 9 different days!! NavRatri (Nine nights) celebration for Goddess Durga is a very special occasion; especially for Ladies!! So, apart from Devotion/Spirituality, this festival give 9 more excuses for shopping!! :D Isn’t that cool ???
For e.g. today 8th oct 2013, you will find many ladies & gents in RED dress even in office or on street. Tomorrow, 9th Oct in BLUE and so on. See this standard chart for Sari (dress) Colour codes for 9 days in 2013.
