Navratri Colours of Nature

Happy Dasara / Dussehra and may good win over all the evil in this world.

Leading upto Dasara is Navratri, where people worship different forms of Goddess Durga over 9 nights (hence “Nav ratri”). At the start of Navratri, everyone looks out for the colour that signifies each day of the 9 days.

Devotees usually dress in the colour of the day to feel the emotion of the colour. Refer here to know more. There may be local variations but here is what seems to have been generally followed in 2021.
