Maa Durga is believed to be the fiercest and bravest Goddess in Hindu mythology. Also known as Shakti, she is epitome of women power, protecting the whole of humankind from evil and suffering.
Navratri is the festival dedicated to celebrate Goddess Durga and her wonderful, nine avatars. A combination of two words namely ‘Nav' and 'Ratri’, it literally means 'Nine Nights'. This festival is celebrated for nine nights, worshipping the nine forms of the Devi.
On Navratri, to honour each Devi, the devotees wear nine different colours on nine nights and celebrate this festival. Interestingly, every colour holds special significance during this festival. You can make the festive days extra-special by wearing the corresponding colours and seek blessings of the Goddess.
For the first day, you can wear the shade of Yellow. This warm colour is believed to keep one cheerful all day long.
Green, the colour of nature and prosperity has been picked for the second day. It brings a sense of peace and calm to those who wear clothing of this colour.
On the third day, the colour for devotees is Grey. Go for a subtle yet stylish look with this elegant colour. This colour is believed to keep emotions balanced throughout the day.
On the fourth day, the colour is Orange. It represents warmth and exuberance. It is believed to bring positive energy to those who wear this colour.
White is the colour on the fifth day. It stands for the beauty of purity and innocence. It is believed to bring inner peace and security to the wearer.
