Goddess Durga shall arrive tonight at our homes today and shall stay with us for the next nine days! Navratri is here and the festivities have begun with great enthusiasm. Amid chants of the powerful Mantras and shlokas, one can see the celebration of the feminine power. It is the celebration of Shakti, from which we all derive our strengths.
