In the Indian state of Gujarat, men and women gather and dance every night of the Navratri to a dance form called Garba and Dandiya. This is now very popular in most parts of India and was a big event in our Hometown. Navaratri brings in Garba or the Dandiya raas.
A dance form depicting Lord Krishna’s dance with his gopikas.. Typically danced with 2 wooden dowels / sticks decorated in festive colours. At home too, we decided to decorate our dandiya sticks ..
