God Mother- Navarathri

Not open for further replies.
Navarathri Celeberation in North and South India especially Tamil Nadu.

Significance of Navarathri is also keeping fast during the nine days. The fast is a misnomer in the present context as people are not used to remain hungry at least once in a day and it is better unsaid about hungry for the whole nine days. However, people take minimum food to sustain their activities in the form of avoiding salt and sour added foods. In the Northern India people especially ladies take cooked potatoe or fruits during the period. According to convenience, people end the fast with a pooja on 8th or 9th day. Some celeberate twice in a year once during Vasantha Navarathri (during April15-May 15) and during September 17-October17 during the period also. The fast is ended with a Pooja to Godmother and distribution of prasad consisting of Kadalai sundal and Rava Kesari to the girls who have not attained puberty. However, in the present day context it is distributed among the girls along with some token money among those who are unmarried and young say upto 15-16 years. The festival is celeberated in South India once by majority of people. The difference is that they do not observe any fast but distribute sundal among the unmarried girls and among women also. In my view, this must have been started as a resource for searching a boy or girl for the girl and vice verse. In South India, I am not sure whethr the festival is celeberated in AP and Kerala. raja48
