Garba Celebrations in Auroville

Program by :

Garba is a dance form originated in Gujarat, performed during Navratri – a 9-day festival of Goddess Durga. It is also known as Garbi, Garbha or Garbha Deep. In ‘Garbha Deep’, the word ‘Garbha’ is a Sanskrit term, which means womb and ‘Deep’ means little earthen lamps. Garba is usually performed in a circle around a big lamp or the statue of Goddess Shakti.

The Garba Dance Festival was celebrated amidst much colour and music at SAWCHU, Bharat Nivas between the 14th and 18th of October. Here we talk to the organizers Shilpa, Falguni and Rakhee about the festival in an Auroville context.
