Engulf In The Five F’s Of Navratri

Navratri Sthapna marks the beginning of the festive season and for the next month or so, it is all about food, festivity, faith, fasting and a lot of fun! Navratri brings a new zeal with itself and there is a wave of new beginnings all around.

Jaipur Beat brings you the five F’s of this beautiful season of love, happiness, colours and light.

  1. Faith– The first and foremost thing that Navratri is about- Maa Durga’s love and blessings. The elaborate ‘puja’ and ‘havan’ during the Navratras cannot be forgotten. Moreover, it’s that time of the year when we finally start visiting the temples quite often due to Navratri. Visiting Amer’s Shila Mata temple is the most important #ThingsToDO which every Jaipurite tries to achieve ditching the tight schedule.

navratri-5 

  1. Fasting- It’s the first question we ask – Are you on fast? That’s the most important part of Navratri. Some do it for faith, some to meet out their weight loss goals, and some do it for de-toxication but some like us are always after the best Falahaari delights. No matter the reason, we all believe in fasting and choose to instil some healthy eating habits during these nine days of Navratri.

  1. Food– Even though Navratri is about fasting, yet food is the constant love. We always find substitutes for what we cannot eat during Navratras. From fruit- chaat to Saabudana Khichdi and Kuttu Ki Puri we keep all the sweet to salty options at hand. And for those who are not fasting, festive season brings a new enthusiasm for the same old spicy food.

  1. Festivity- There is an air of festive mood in the weather with all the festive discounts, shopping spree, family functions and wedding functions lining up. You can see light and decorations wherever you turn your head.

 IMG_9658

  1. Fashion- Last but not least, fashion always makes the place for itself when it comes to the festivity. We have all tip-topped ourselves with glittery Gujarati or Rajasthani lehengas and Angrakhas some time or the other for the epic Garba and Dandiya night or even taking out our traditional Indian outfits.

The best time of the year is right here. Let’s enjoy it to the most!

Wishing you all a very Happy Navratri ! 🙂

The Celebrations Begin with Navratri :)

dasara-dussehra-2009
So what do the Navratri and this festival-full month mean to you Jaipurites? Poojas at home, a lot of holidays from school or college, lots of typical traditional outfits, dandiya & garba plans, fasting for peace and prosperity and a lot more is what October indeed promises. When it comes to celebrating traditions and making the most out of these happy times we never lag behind. After all this is the exact time to meet all the fellow youngsters of town and know the juicy gossips in the air ;). You just have to know the right place to be!

Diwali_Diya

The days are going to start with an auspicious pooja and an all-too-enchanting Om Jai Ambey Gauri bhajan. The pleasant feeling you derive makes this a happy time. Some start the Navratri with prayers at Amer’s Maata’s Mandir. For the next nine days, prayers and fasting are going to be rigorous and dedicated.

The dandiya nights and garba evenings are going to be eclectic, fun and pleasant. While these events bring the mood of the season alive, they are the temporarily the most ‘it’ places of the pink city. Ask the young Jaipurites and they will know how happening Sundaram, Jai Club and Grassfields’ dandiya galas get 😉 Why should the grown-ups be any behind? Abhivyakti, by Dainik Bhaskar certainly is one of the largest and the oldest garba gathering of the city. There are even preparatory dance classes, planned by the organisers. Abhivyakti is as traditional as it gets!

Ravana-Dussehra645__1202151648

The 9 day Navratri festival is followed by the Vijay Dashmi on the 10th day. It is the culmination of the Ramlila which is enacted ceremoniously during Dussehra, the effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakarna, and Meghanada are burnt to celebrate the victory of good (Rama) over evil forces on the ‘Vijaya Dashami’ day. Ofcourse we all have learnt that at school and from our good-old Ramayana show on Doordarshan. How many of us have special family memories and those school enactments fresh in our minds?!
