The Most Amazing 15 Reasons why Garba runs in blood of every Gujarati

Nav, which means nine and Ratri, which means night. So Navratri is a festival wherein people celebrate the power of 9 forms of goddess Durga. It is a festival of joy, dance, colors, and lots of love.

People around the world are very well aware of the terms Navratri and Garba. So much is its popularity, that as soon as one comes across a Gujarati, the very next thought that comes to his/her mind is Garba.

Navratri is so popular that not only the Gujaratis or even people from other parts of India celebrate it, but people from around the globe love doing Garba.

A lot of non-Gujaratis keep wondering why we love Garba so much. Ask any Gujarati and he or she will give a hundred points as to why they love Garba! 

For now, I bring to you 15 reasons why Gujaratis love Garba....!!!

1. The name itself gets our legs dancing. We don’t need any drinks to get high, Garba can get us high! and comes after 1 year of wait....

2. The beautiful traditional music called Garbo, which means the songs on which we do Garba, are traditionally rich and they truly portray the culture of Gujarat. We love these songs like Tara vina Shyam mane… & Paatan thi Patoda mangaavo… so much that while dancing, we even sing at the top of our voices.
