Navratri is a nine-day long Hindu festival that is celebrated every year in autumn. The word Navaratri means ‘nine nights’ in Sanskrit. The nine days of Navratri are dedicated to Goddess Durga and her nine Avatars – the Navadurga. Each day is associated with one of the incarnations of the goddess. Navratri is all about honoring Ma Durga. It is not just about destroying the darkness but also bringing about the destruction of evil thoughts and feelings within humans themselves.
Abhyudaya – the cultural club of IIM Nagpur, is hosting a feast for its family, this time in a virtual mode.
