Navratri symbolises nine nights of battle of the good against the evil with victory of the good on the tenth day. Goddess Durga is worshipped during Navratri.
Dandiya events also mark the festival of Navratri.
According to mythology, Goddess Durga had killed demon Mahishasura after nine nights of furious battle.
During the nine nights of Navratri, Goddess Durga is worshipped as ‘Shakti’ for the first three days; as Lakshmi for the next three days; and as Saraswati for the last three days.
During this period, devotees also keep fast in the honour of Goddess Durga.
