2016 Gujarati Garba Dress - Latest Trends

Navaratri is a nine day festival celebrated in India to honor the Mother Goddess in all her avatars (forms). Celebrated twice every year, once in the month Chaitra (March) and then in the month of Ashwin (September-October). The latter consists of the main rituals of placing the idol or image of the Goddess in homes and temples and immersed in water after the nine days of Navaratri. The Navratri 2016 dates of the Ashwin month are from October 1st till October 11th. It is one of the festivals celebrated across the length and breadth of India, though the celebrations in one part of the country is quite different than the other. With various customs and traditions, each region of India has its own unique way of celebrating the Navaratri by honoring the various forms of Mother Goddess with their own rituals and ceremonies.

In this part of the country, this festival is known as Navaratras and is observed with a period of fasting for seven days. On the eight day, the fast is broken by inviting home young girls as an avatar of the Goddess herself known as Kanjak Devis, to be worshiped with traditional ceremonies. Navami is the ninth day of the festival where the seeds of pulses or cereals that were sown on the first day and worshiped all through the days have now sprouted and after the puja, the seedlings are immersed in water. It is a custom indicated towards the harvesting customs of the place. In many parts of North India, Ramaleela – a play on the epic Ramayana is performed. Similar to the celebrations in South India, the tenth day of Navaratri known as Dusshera is celebrated here in the same way by burning the effigies of Ravana. However, here the effigies of Ravana’s brother Kumbhakarna and son Meghanand are also burnt along with Ravana.

While these parts of India have their own different ways of celebrating the festival of Navaratri, they haven’t hesitated in embracing the traditions of others while celebrating their own. Dusshera of Kerala is celebrated in Maharashtra with the same purpose and enthusiasm just like Dandiya Raas and Garba Raas have found their way into almost all Navaratri celebrating parts of India.

The custom of dancing Dandiya and Garba often forms the main highlight of navratri chaniya choli celebrations, especially in the western part of India. Garba and Dandiya is not a part of Gujarat anymore as it is also celebrated in abroad. Apart from its intrinsic grace, what makes Garba and Dandiya even more alluring are its vibrant and colorful Indian Gujarati Garba dress that men and women adorn. See latest Garba Trends
