During Navrathri, we celebrate the power of the goddess for nine days - each day is a different form of the goddess, showing her various strengths (superpowers!). On the 10th day, called Dusshera, people choose to celebrate Durga, the mighty warrior goddess. Or, they might cheer the the defeat of the evil king Ravana, by the god Rama and his army of brave monkeys and bears! Many dance for nine nights with colorful dandiya sticks; others make puppets and dolls to ring in the fun!
