Navratri is a nine night festival that ends with Dussehra on the 10th day that is the victory of good over evil. This festival is celebrated by all Hindus and has special significance in Gujarati community.

The celebration varies from one Indian state to another although the dedication and devotion remains the same all over India.

The most renowned and flamboyant Navratri celebrations occur in western India in Gujarat and Mumbai. The festival is celebrated with nine nights of dancing – the traditional dances of Gujarat (garba and dandiya raas) are performed in circles with dancers dressed in colorful clothes. They decorate a small clay pot on the first day of Navratri, a small lighted earthen lamp called a 'deep' is kept in it, and women dance around the pot as it is regarded as the source of life. It is a folk dance form of Gujarat state in India. The dance's circular patterns represent the movement of time and the cycle of life from birth to death to rebirth again. The only thing that remains constant is the feminine form of Divinity that is the Goddess Durga, represented by the Garbha Deep. Thus, by way of the Garba dance, the goddess Durga is honored.

In Delhi, the Navratri celebrations are characterized by the Ramlila plays that take place over the city. Huge effigies to the demon Ravan are burned on Dussehra as according to Hindu mythology in the Ramayana, at the beginning of Navratri, Rama prayed to the Goddess Durga to grant him the power to slay Ravan. He received the power on the eight day and Ravan was defeated on Dussehra.
