 Gujaratis say during Garba.

    Navratri begins tonight and along with the festive season comes a legitimate reason to dance around in circles while clapping and hitting other dancer’s sticks with your sticks – it is time to go ga-ga over Garba. Navratri celebrates Navdurga Parva as the special occasion of the victory by Lord Rama over Ravana and the power of Goddess Durga over evil.

Garba is a staple of Gujarati jalsa which needs no real reason but with Navratri, Garba holds special significance as the circular movement of a group of dancers refers to the Hindu view of time from birth to death and rebirth as the cycle of life represented by Dandiya-Raas dance popular in Gujarat and parts of Maharashtra especially Mumbai.

Women dress up in chaniya cholis while traditional men’s wear dictates wearing kafni pyjamas with a short kurta that opens up like a ghagra when the dancer swirls adding to the dramatic effect during Garba.

What we have here is basically the stereotypes in Gujaratis which you inevitably hear if you have been to a garba dance with the inevitable majority of Gujjus circling you as they indulge in their special Navratri sweet talk.
