Aa rang de dupatta mera 💕 ___ Dupatta: Long rectangular cloth wich is worn over the shoulders by women in many south Asian countries (specially in India ❤) ___ The dupatta has an extremely important place in the Indian traditional attire. The style of it changes per region, and it is known by many traditional names just like Odhini in Rajasthan or Chunni in Punjab. It's history and origin are not that clear and it is difficult to find evidence related to it. Although, the Vedic Indian history has some similarities with what we know as a dupatta. 🙏

DAY 6 - NAVRATRI - GREEN: This color signifies new beginnings and growth. ______ “No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book!

DAY 4 - NAVRATRI - ROYAL BLUE: The colour of the fourth day of Navratri is royal blue. This colour is considered good for health and wealth.

Yeh preet hai purani 🎶 ● Excitement level: 😍 ● This time of the year ❤ ___ What is navratri? Navratri, literally “nine nights”, is a Hindu celebration in honour of the goddess Durga. For many, the story behind the nine-day celebration is about a battle between the goddess Durga and the demon Mahishasura. While other Hindus instead celebrate the victory of god Rama over the demon king Ravana during this time. In all cases, the theme of Navratri is a battle between good and evil, with the forces of good triumphing in the end. On each day of Navratri, a colour is assigned which participants are expected to wear while celebrating. ___ As I said before, navratri is my favorite hindu festival and there are like thousands of reasons why!! This year I'm going to make an indo-western kinda lookbook representing every color of the festivities per day. ___ I'm posting this little video because this song goes perfectly with my theme 🙏❤
