Navratri is not just a mere festival but a celebration of the power, strength and the win of goddesses over all the evil through their fearlessness. It is to depicting how prominent it is to worship all of the goddesses. Well, in our Hindu tradition, Navratri is celebrated with all enthusiasm. It starts with preparing our home’s temple for the welcome of all the Devis. Later takes forward by worshipping each goddess each day for the next nine days.
People take fast either for all nine days or for eight days and then worship nine Kanyas and treat them with food, chunni and gifts (bhett) after doing their pooja. Some also like to take up only the first and eighth day of the fast and do the rituals on the ninth day. Even if you don't fast, it is okay to worship the Kanya on the ninth day. People in the name of “bhog” worship young girls, as they are considered Devi. They are believed to be the “ansh” of goddesses. Every Indian woman celebrates Navratri with cheerfulness.
