Today is Dussehra the 10th and final day of 9 days festival called "Navratri". This festival is celebrated by different names in different parts of India. In East it's called "Puja" wherein people celebrate and worship the powers of "Devi" or "Durga" the female goddess in Hindu religion.
In Gujarat and neighbouring states the festival spans for nine days ooooppss I should say nine nights wherein people come together and dance to the tunes of folk songs. Wearing traditional colorful dresses watching these people dance is fun and enjoyment. It gives immense pleasure to enter the arena and dance to the beats. Well you may miss in the first try but you won't resist doing it either.
And on the final day prayer and worship is offered to God asking for peace and brotherhood and prosperity. But what's so peculiar about this festival in Gujarat is the food. "Ravan dahan" may also be seen at many places.
The history behind the festival is that on this day (Dussehra) God Ram killed Ravana who had kidnapped Devi Sita, wife of Ram. This day is celebrated for the victory of Good over Evil.
"Fada and Jalebi" worth more than 3 crores are sold on a single day all over city. This name is not unfamiliar for an Indian. And for Amdavadis and Gujju people these delicacies are something to savor upon on this day.
So being a "pundit blogger" I typed "fafda jalebi" in google and came up with this blog have it's name as "Fafda Jalebi"
Well it's these festivals and culture that make India a great country and place to live at. You have each and every moment to enjoy and cherish.
