Navratri is about dressing up, meeting friends and dancing all nine days: Rashami Desai
The festive season is here with the air brimming of gaiety and high spirits.
Television’s popular diva, Rashami Desai (Uttaran, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa) is also basking in the festive fervour.
She says, “I am a Gujarati, so for me, navratri is about dressing up, meeting friends and watching everyone play dandiya besides doing regular pooja. It's one of the most colorful, rich festivals for us Gujaratis. I usually can’t go for garba all nine days, but I try my best to go at least three days every year, without fail. “
Dance and Rashami make for sexy combo!!!
She continues: “I have been fasting all nine days since a long time. I actually live on fruits during navratri. My favourite fruits include apple, banana and kiwi.”
It must be helping her diet regime too.
Next she shares her fond navratri memories: “ My most precious childhood memories of navratri are the times when my mom used to take me shopping for garba and dandiya. I remember buying all those colorful costumes and jewellery and playing garba all nine nights. Also, since I would fast, my mother would pamper me with all delicacies that can only be eaten during the fast. We would get the Garbi (an earthen pot that is decorated and a diya is placed inside it which has to be kept lit for nine days) at our place and have a puja and recite prayers. It was all just a beautiful experience.”
