One of the most awaited festivals of India, Navaratri always falls on different dates every year. It is because the Garba dates are dependent on the planetary constellations. Garba 2013 is expected from 5th October to 13th October.
“Garba”, the word has been derived from the Sanskrit word “Garbha” meaning womb and “Deep” which means light. Garba is essentially a traditional dense performed by the people during the Navaratris.
Garba is basically a circular form of dance that includes clapping and whirling around the Idol of Mother Durga as part of the dance. The Garba songs are usually dedicated to Lord Krishna or one of the nine Goddesses. Men and women are seen in colourful traditional Gujrati attires, particularly the Garba attires during the dance.
There are many renowned 2013 Garba events to be held across India this Navaratri. These include the much known United Way Garba and Maa Shakti Garba in Vadodara. They are expected to see a footfall of around forty-five thousand.
