A colorful celebration

Annual Navratri Garba brings an evening filled with food, dance and music

 

Approximately 700 patrons gathered on Saturday, October 28, 2023 at Schoolcraft College for the annual Navratri Garba celebration. The event took place from 7 p.m. to midnight in the Vistatech Center and was sponsored by the Asian Student Association. Tickets were $25 in advance, $30 at the door.

The ticket includes an Indian dinner catered by Suvai and live music by Kuldip Bhatt. Indian clothes and jewelry were available for purchase as well.

All proceeds went toward the Schoolcraft Student Food Pantry, a program that is dedicated to providing non-perishable food items to students and their families who are impacted by financial hardship.

Navratri is a Hindu festival that takes place over nine nights. The word “Navratri” is a conjunction of the two words “nava” (meaning “nine”) and “ratri” (meaning “night”). This festival is devoted to the Mother Goddess known variously as Durga, Kali, Bhavani, Amba and Chandika.
