Navratri 2009

This year Navratri was from 19th to 27th September. For typically Gujarati person, navratri means

– To participate in arti (and obviously dont miss prasad)
– Do garba (in all possible stype, steps, as long as he can do)
– Play rass (with as many people as possible)

On top it, if he can do
– Play Sanedo
– Eat good fafda with sambharo and marchi and Hot Jalebi on Dasara

Similar to Last year, This year also I went to Jayanagar Syunkt mandal organized function, my friends and me did all above stuff :). Everyyear, it is held at BES college in Jayanagar.

This time, I did better garba, rass than last year and obviously enjoyed more. To add more, as always, last night, we had unlimited Fafda Jalebi 🙂 All and all, to enjoy garba in Bangalore, Jayanagar and Palace ground are best palace. Obviously, during navrati, I did meet more new gujarati people in Bangalore and had nice time with them.

  1. Hi Viral,

    I am happy to read that Navratri happened in Bangalore.

    I am looking for information of Navratri 2010. I am from Ahmedabad and very much interested in Garba and Dandiya.

    Looking forward for information and see if we can hit each other while playing Garba 😛

    Cheers !!!

  2. Hi Jaynath,
    Sure. This year too, Navratri celebration will happen in Bangalore. I can guess venues will be:
    – Palace Ground (Gayatri Vihar and other ground too)
    – Jayanagar (BES Law college ground)
    – Rajaji nagar
    – BSK 3rd Stage
    Looking forward for it.
    WBR, Viral

  3. Hi Viral,

    Thanks to your blog, I got to know that you get to have Fafda in Bangalore.

    Do you have any contact details of any place which can cater Fafda/Jalebi? I am desperately looking for one for Dusshera morning for a large group of people in our apartment complex.
