Navratri is a festival which celebrates the Goddess Durga, the goddess of power. Navratri is celebrated twice a year, once in spring and once in autumn. Spring’s Navratri is known as Chaitra Navratri and Vasant Navratri. These two Navratris are two of the most important and longest festivals.

In this festival, we celebrate how goddess Durga defeated Demon Mahishasura in a battle. That is why we do puja; to remove the bad energy and to earn some good energy.

I wish that Goddess Durga gives us power to fight during the deadly pandemic.
