Navratri is one of the most important events in the Hindu calendar. It pays homage to the Hindu deity of Durga – who is the principal and popular form of the Hindu warrior goddess. Navratri is a period of worship spread over nine nights, which ran from Sunday, 29th September to Tuesday, 8th October this year. On the evening of Saturday, 5th October it was my pleasure to join hundreds of people to celebrate the festival of Navratri at an event in Northampton College.
I have visited this event many times over the years and always enjoy meeting friends there and taking part in the traditional dancing!
