Dancing to a whole lot of tunes
Goddess, Durga (also called Amba) is worshiped during the nine-day Hindu festival of Navartri. In the eastern and northeastern states of India, Durga Puja is synonymous with Navratri, wherein goddess Durga battles and emerges victorious over the demon to help restore Dharma.
People prepare well in advance for this bright and colourful festival which is celebrated with great fervour across India. Each of the nine days signify different avatars of the goddess and have different colours attached to it, which devotees follow while taking part in the energetic and playful dancing. Traditionally, people play raas garba and dandiya with colourful costumes on these nine nights to worship Goddess Durga.

The Afternoon Despatch & Courier photographers Trupti Arekar and Santosh Gupta visited the nooks and corners of the city and captured the moods and moments of people grooving to the music.
