Although different parts of the country have different reasons and different ways of celebrating Navratri, it is nevertheless a pan-Indian festival!

In South India, the festival celebrates the victory of Shakthi over the demon Mahishasura. The first three days commemorate Durga, then Lakshmi and finally Saraswati. On the tenth day or Vijadasami, these three key forms of the Goddess unify into one all-encompassing force that vanquishes the demon.

While people perform pujas and Ramayan recitals and observe fasts during the initial days of Navratri, the last few days are celebrated as a community event culminating in the burning of Ravana’s effigy on Vijayadasami.
