It is nice to read about these different customs. We normally only hear about garba and dandiya. Yet the celebrations are vibrant and distinct throughout the country.

Dandiya is one Navratri tradition that has been adopted by the rest of the country. Everywhere, you have dandiya nights, which are attended by thousands of people. But the charm of this dance is truly felt in Gujarat. Famous singers are roped in to perform at different places and people are dressed in their finest clothes. Many people wear a different outfit for each of the nine days.

It was nice to read how the celebrations are different in the country. I guess local customs and traditions go a long way towards giving a festival its uniqueness.

For Durga pooja, Bengal is the place to be. Nothing can beat the celebrations there. Ten days of dhoom and masti.
