Gujaratis During Navratri

 

You could be celebrating Navratri and garbas at any part of the world, but you know there is no Navratri that’s better than Gujarat’s! From the way we deck ourselves up to the kind of energy the state has during these 9 days; it is not only infectious, but also envious. Say what you will, but this is and will always be the biggest festival in Gujarat always! You can call it Gujju SunBurn or Gujju Carnival, neither do we care nor does it offend us; for us it’s all about praying, dancing and eating lip smacking food. As the Navratri season approaches, there is a marked change in the atmosphere of the state and its people. Everyone’s busy prepping things for the most anticipated 9 days of the year. We bring to you 10 things that happen to Gujaratis During Navratri.

 

Getting a leave or a half day at work

1You could be having the most insanely important project, but if you are in Gujarat, it has to take a backseat during Navratri. Every Navratri enthusiast saves his/her leaves until Navratri and then spends it all at a go!

2The stress every girl goes through

The first one being, “Oh God, I hope I don’t get my period in these nine days! I don’t want it!” The other being, getting the right dress, jewellery and make up in order for all the nine days!

12Our Navratri is incomplete until we have had our dose of lip smacking junk food. After all, what is Gujarat without food, right?!
