Behind the shimmer of cascading outfits following feet full of fervor;
Beneath the clamour of clinking dandiyas calling on festive days that turn into nights; Wrapped in an air of flamboyance, an overdose of food and a whiff of the wishful winds lies an Indian festival more vibrant and more intertwined in love than any other.
We’re talking about the star-studded, moonstruck, always-on-trend Navratri! When the girls search all their wardrobes for the most attention-grabbing outfits and the men wait in awe to be able to steal a glance and a dance.
