The special time of the year is here. One of the biggest Hindu festivals is just around the corner and we already can’t keep calm. This year Chaitra Navratri will be celebrated from March 22 to March 20. Every year Chaitra Navratri is celebrated during March or Aril. It is the time when the nine avatars of Maa Durga are worshiped with fasts and festivals. The rituals observed during Chaitra Navratri are similar to those observed during Sharadiya Navratri, which is celebrated in September or October. In West Bengal, Sharadiya Navratri is also known as Durga Puja.
