Navratri starts on Tuesday -- nine nights of garba and dandiya dancing. The music is so loud and powerful that it can feel like it's performing CPR on your chest. Ear protection required!
|Setting up for garba in a housing complex.|
|Chaniya cholis for sale. ("Chaniya" is the skirt; "choli" is the blouse.)|
|The men's costumes are as colorful as the women's. The children's versions are particularly cute.|
|More garba costumes.|
|Some of the dances require dandiya sticks.|
