Navratras are here and Indians all over the world celebrate these nine days with much fanfare and worship. The Goddess is worshipped for these nine days and fasting is conducted for all these nine days which culminate into Ram Navmi. This is also the day when the fasting ends and on this day little girls are called into our homes and treated like goddesses. We certainly do wish that our daughters and girls are treated as Goddesses all through the year and not just on Navratras. So, what do women wear on these Nine days. Memsaab brings you a sneak peek
The first day of Navratras - Devotees are expected to wear the color Yellow. The Goddess is bedecked with the color Grey. On the second day, devotees wear the color Green, while the Goddess is dressed in Orange attire. It is believed that this goddess enlightens elegant forms with great power, divine and spiritual grace,
On the third day, the Goddess is dressed in the color White while devotees wear the color Grey. On the fourth day, Red is the color for the Goddess as it symbolizes that the Goddess is the creator of the universe. The devotees wear the color Orange on this day. On the fifth day, the Goddess is dressed in the color Blue, while the devotees wear White. On the sixth day of Navratras, devotees wear the color Red and the Goddess wears the color Yellow.
Proceeding to the seventh day, the Goddess protects her devotees from evil and hence wears the colour Green while her devotees wear the color Blue. The eighth day is the day which is most awaited by female devotees, since that is the day when they get to wear the color Pink. On this day, the Goddess wears Peacock Green. It is the ninth day which marks the culmination of the festival and on this day the Goddess and devotees wear one and the same color - Purple.
