Chaitra Navratri, the festival of worship of Adi Shakti, begins on Wednesday, 25 March 2020. In Hindu religion, Navratri, which falls on the Shukla Paksha of Chaitra month, is considered to be of great importance. During this Navratri, the devotees of Mata try to please the nine forms of Mata Durga by worshiping them for the whole nine days.
According to religious beliefs, the nine colors of Mata Durga are determined in these nine days. Devotees of Mata consider the nine days of Navratri extremely auspicious. Wearing different colored clothes during these nine days is said to have a different significance of devotion to the mother.
People, especially women who celebrate nine nights festivals of Nav Durga, follow a specific color of the day. This tradition is very popular between Maharashtra and Gujarat. In Hinduism, it is very sacred to wear clothes in the colors of Navratri of the day.
Women followed this tradition extensively during Navratri and wore similarly colored clothes and accessories. This trend is very popular among devotees who observe fasting during the nine days of devotee Navratri.
