Here is Information about Navratri Festival Speech for Students.
Good Morning My School Principal Sir ,teachers and my Classmate and dear students.My name is.....Today starting Navratri festival.I give a speech about this festival.Navratri is a popular Hindu festival dedicated to Goddess Durga.Navratri festival is celebrated in the month of October/ November. The festival is celebrated twice a year, dates of which are determined according to the lunar calendar. During Navratri, people from villages and cities gather to perform ‘puja’ on small shrines representing different aspects of Goddess Durga, including Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati.
The festival is celebrated all over the country but with different names. North Indians celebrate Navratri by worshipping the idols of Goddess Durga. Pre-pubescent girls are worshipped as a symbolic representation of the deity. They are offered delicious food items and gifts. In Bengal, decorative ‘pandals’ are made and people visit these ceremonial pandals to worship Goddess in festive mood. In Gujarat, the nine nights of the navratri are celebrated with traditional local touch which has now become global. A traditional dance form ‘garba’ is done throughout the nine nights of celebration. Similar, festivals are celebrated in south India also.Navratri festival is celebrated during the time of year which depicts the transition in the solar and climatic influence. The navratri festival is celebrated to mark the expression of Goddess Durga in the form of Shakti (energy).
Navratri is more of a community event in Gujarat, where people perform devotional songs and dances that are popular by the names of 'DandiyaRaas' and 'GarbaRaas', and observe Jaagran (waking through the night), to please the Goddess. Navratri is celebrated throughout Gujarat in three ways: at Mataji's temples, in individual households and at public places in every city, town and villages by thousands of people - men, women and children - through drumbeats, dance and dandy (wooden lacquered sticks). While ritualistic aspect predominates the first two modes of celebration, social and cultural aspects are visible vibrantly in the last. The Amba Mata Temple at Junagarh, Gujarat, is a favorite pilgrim for devotees, during Navratri. Here, the Garbo, which is a perforated earthen pot with a lighted lamp within, is placed around which brightly dressed women, men and children move singing and playing a folk dance called garba. This earthen pot is a symbol of the human body and the lighten lamp inside signifies the divine soul Moving around a circle in a Garba indicates the never ending cycle of creation, maintenance and destruction phases of the supreme reality.
Thank you ....
