Of Festivities

For Ashtami, Kajol picked a sandalwood colors Anavila sari wearing it with a metallic blouse, mogra and my favorite part about this look, anklets!

You won’t find me complaining. The color of the day though was pink which her sister followed by wearing a hot pink sari by Mint N Oranges and mom, by picking a light pink one.

P.S. In case you are wondering, while the colors of Navratri are the same, the order of which to wear on what days is different each year.

  1. “I wish you wouldn’t add the line ‘colour of the day was pink but’, there is absolutely no reference to colours of navratri in mythology. It is something that was added on later and in a way propagates superstition. It is fun in a way but it will only take few seconds from people to jump from fun to superstition.

    • I agree.
      To add to that, Bengali festivities have no colour additions at all. We celebrate 5 of the Navratri days, and try to wear our best clothes (preferably new) and most jewelry possible. Kajol, Rani Mukherjee, Tanuja and everyone else were perfectly tuned to Durga Puja the way a Bengali celebrates it. There are no colours for days, just good clothes and jewelry and love for a Goddess.
