Festival

Navratri is one of the most celebrated Hindu festivals to invoke goddess “Durga”. “Navratri” is a Sanskrit word, mix up with the word, “Nava” means nine and “Ratri” means night. It spans nine nights to rejoice every year. It is believed that Navratri is celebrated on the common theme of Victory of Good over Evil. Maa Durga killed Mahishashur – a Buffalo demon of Hindu mythology and Maryada Purushotam Rama killed Ravan on Vijyadashmi, the 10th day of Navaratri. Every year, people celebrate Vijyadashmi with a stage drama named “Ravan Vadh” or RamLila. During Navratri, most of the people avoid to consume non-vegetarian food items and the food prepared by using garlic and onion. The season invites people to visit the places popular for Navratri celebration. During festive seasons the flight prices gets higher so the people generally prefer to travel via train. Another reason to opt the journey via train is the enthusiasm of devotees and travelers to feel the rhythm of Navratri season from train’s window.
