In today’s session we talked about Navarathri, celebrating the destruction of evil different ways in which it is celebrated in Indian homes all over the world. In some homes it is celebrated as “Gollu”, where dolls are arranged on steps and friends and families are invited to take part in this festivity. There are those who take part in “Garba“, a group dance performed with sticks during this festive period.  In the temple special puja’s are performed with yummy treats.
