Navratri literally stands for 'Nine Nights'. It is one of the most auspicious festivals In India when the nine incarnations of Goddess Durga are worshipped on nine separate days.
The most important out of them is the Sharad Navratri that occurs in September- October. It also marks the beginning of the spring season. It is celebrated all over India and Nepal. In Maharashtra, this day is celebrated as Durga Puja.
Marriage is a lifetime commitment bond between two imperfect people which is made possible by the God himself, held together with limitless love, unshakeable faith and undying devotion for one another.
Our scriptures hold this institution sacred. Thus, all married females, specifically in North India fast one complete day without even a drop of water for the longevity of their husband. This festival with passage of time has been gaining popularity by each passing year.
Diwali is arguably the most important Hindu Festival celebrated far and wide. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five-day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunar-solar month Kartika.
Diwali is also known by the name of Deepavali, where deep stands for pots of light and awali stands for a line. Diwali is the celebration of the inner light of goodness over spiritual darkness, knowledge over ignorance, right over wrong, good over evil.
