In India, the second half of the year is dotted with many festivities and cultural events that make the country vibrate. As festivals such as Krishna Janmashtami and Ganesh Chaturthi are over, people have already started planning Durga Puja and Navratri, both of which are elaborate celebrations that last for many nights and honor Goddess Durga or Shakti, the feminine force that the Hindus believe to keep the balance of the universe.

In Navratri, the Gujarati community participates in the Garba and Dandiya celebrations, which are essentially dance forms dedicated to the Goddess.

Indian express photographer Nirmal Harindran recently clicked on dancers during a workout on the eastern bank of the Sabarmati River, near Jamalpur, Gujarat. Take a look at the photos.

For the uninitiated, the Garba dance form is paired with heavy, opulent and colorful outfits, with matching headwear and other similar accessories. It is a joyful dance form with reverent roots, performed in circular movements with a singular emphasis on the deity Amba, another name for Durga.

Navratri celebrations start around September-October, but preparations start months before. These dancers look professional, judging by their attire, on which they must have devoted months of creative energy.

As you can see in the photos, a dancer’s headgear / turban featured actor Sonu Sood and PM Narendra Modi. The actor has become somewhat of a national hero of the pandemic, due to the way he has helped people during the stages of migration and during the severe second wave, which claimed many lives earlier this year. . On the other hand, the Prime Minister’s vaccination campaign is said to have benefited many people in the country.

So it’s ideal for people to celebrate the contributions of those who have made a difference, while safely participating in the festivities of the continuing pandemic.

In Garba, we clap our hands and fingers, as well as intermittent rounds in accordance with the music. Once that starts, people fall into hypnotic synchronization, and that makes for a brilliant cultural extravaganza.
