Nine Days of Navratri.
Nine Days of worshiping the Mother Goddess; a different manifestation every day. Nine days of fasting; nine nights of feasting. Nine nights of frenzied dancing; of offering yourself through dance to the Divine Feminine
Nine Days of celebrating Fertility. Nine days of Worshiping the Divine in pre-pubescent girls, in teenagers in the flush of youth, in mothers young and old.
Nine days of festive wear, even in offices and court-rooms. The Nine colours of Navratri. Nine days of the city awash in different hues of the same colour.
Nine Days of Navratri. A celebration of Womanhood._____
