Navratri and Indian New Year are two significant Hindu festivals that are celebrated with great enthusiasm and devotion across the country. The first Navratri, known as Chaitra Navratri, is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Shailputri, who is believed to be the daughter of the mountains and a form of Goddess Parvati. Each day of Navratri is associated with a different form of the goddess, and devotees observe fasts, perform puja, and participate in traditional dance forms like Garba and Dandiya. Indian New Year, also known as “Ugadi” in the southern part of India and “Gudi Padwa” in the western part of India, marks the beginning of the new year according to the Hindu lunar calendar. The festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm and involves traditional rituals such as decorating the house with mango leaves, preparing traditional food, and exchanging gifts.
