Ethnic Day & Dandiya Masti at Satven
Posted by Admin, Tuesday, October 13, 2015
On the eve of Navaratri, Satven celebrated ethnic day followed by an extremely energizing Dandiya night. Associates vying for top honors for the best ethnic wear, turned out in snazzy outfits such as Dhotis, Kurtas, Sherwanis, Sarees, Lehengas, Anarkalies, among others and danced to the tune of Dandiya songs.
The Dandiya dance form originated as devotional Garba dance, which is performed in Goddess Durga’s honor. This dance form is actually the staging of a mock fight between Goddess Durga and Mahishasura, the mighty demon-king. The sticks of the dance represent the sword of Goddess Durga.
All young associates of Satven along with the Management team celebrated Navratri by dancing away their blues (if they had any to start with, that is).
It indeed was a refreshing break for all associates.
