It was a friday night and we were tired and wanted to sleep but then our friend Hena asked us if we wanted to go to navratri cekebration where we would dance, play games, and eat indian food this was the thing I was missing the most since I came to USA. While the exchange teacher and his family there were enjoying if any of this doesnt seems true go to their blog-www.naturallyfundays.wordpress.com., here we were sulky and tired of it raining every day 18 hrs. Anyway, we went with them to the community center and after seeing all that energy and tasty treats, and the energetic dancing I got lots and lots of energy in me and I was excited, super excited to dance and eat and dance again, first up was garba in which i decided to stay back and click some of the photos. Everybody was wearing Traditional India Clothes and ladies were decorated with ornaments and jwelleries and everybody looked so good, all the men were wearing kurtla pyjamas and ladies saries, lehangas, and kurties(all sorts of traditional indian dresses).
The next was The prayer which was very long and the worst part was we didnt even get to sing/chant it. Then at last it was Dandia( A dance with the sticks) We enjoyed a lot in it and it was very energetic I did dandia for more than 2 hours without stopping and I was so exhausting I thought I was going to faint at the last. So then I sat and drank water and lots of it, ate some pottasium(bananas) and then I went on to play one more game and this was, which I only have a video and will upload it later. After all of this energetic dancing I finally went to sleep and slept for 12 hours. That was an awesome day not at all our typical day.
