Navratri Garba Dances

A little culture from my own life!

Navratri is a festival of 9 nights in honor of Durga or Amba that is celebrated with dances in Gujarat.

Gujjus love this festival as much as they love their food. And everyone dances – men, women, children, grandmas – everyone.

Having grown up on this is takes just one second of hearing the beat for the desire to dance in step bursts forth.

So here are some clips – some that came to me as forwards on whatsapp.

The first is a flash mob dancing at Ahmedabad airport – uniformed staff too! This is in the area of the boarding gares after the security checks.

Then this is from the commercial area of Mumbai – Nariman Point

And then the next two are from my aunt’s home – they always have place for more people in their home. ♥️

And finally one rrom my inclusive neighborhood. Lucky to have grown up in one and lucky to have found this place in which life is still being lived with a strong sense of togetherness. (no one knows me here and yet I was welcomed to participate (after being fed about 1000 calories of a variety of amazing prasads)

It is these festivals that make me realise that “we are living in the best of times and in the best of places”!

A very happy jm
