Navratri is one of the few festivals that are celebrated pan-India with equal devotion. Sharad Navratri is set to begin on September 26, 2022 and will culminate with Vijayadashami on October 5. The festival is dedicated to worshipping Goddess Durga and all her nine incarnations. Many people observe fast or eat sattvik food during the nine days of the festival. Each day is ascribed a specific colour and is associated with one form of Goddess Durga. Those who observe Navratri each day individually, prepare foods of the specific colour of the day and offer it for bhog too. If you plan to follow this traditional Navratri ritual, we have listed day-wise colours and food suggestions that you can consider.
