Colour­ful cel­e­bra­tions mark Navra­tri Fes­ti­val

The Star (Kenya) - - Sasa - BY MOSES MALINDI

The Navara­tri Fes­ti­val is usu­ally marked with great devo­tion and fer­vor by mem­bers of the Hindu com­mu­nity all over the world. This year, devo­tees flocked tem­ples across Kenya to mark the cel­e­bra­tions with song dance and vi­brancy.

The tem­ples in Nairobi, Kisumu, Mom­basa, Ki­tale and El­doret were well dec­o­rated and there were live per­for­mances by mu­si­cians from In­dia who kept the guests on their feet un­til the crack of dawn.

Be­tween the garba ses­sions were tea breaks to al­low the devo­tees to take a breather and re-en­er­gise be­fore an­other round of danc­ing.
