The festive season is almost here with Navaratri starting on September 21. The nine-day festival is celebrated across all the states of India but its significance differs from state to state. However, one thing that is common and applies to all is new clothes, elaborate decoration, dances and food (at least for the Bengalis). It is also the time when we wish to get dressed in our brightest and most colourful clothes, grab that dandiya stick and dance the night away. So to help you out with that, here’s a list of Garba and Dandiya nights being hosted across Delhi this Navratri season.
