The festival of Navratri is the celebration of the arrival of Goddess Durga. The whole of India and specifically the eastern states of India are decked up in finery and decorations to welcome the Mother Goddess. The arrival of Mother Goddess is considered very auspicious and the vehicle that she uses to come in is just as important. Every year, Goddess Durga arrives in a specific vahan and chooses another vahan for her departure.
