    Dasara greetings to you, your family and Boddunan community. There are many common features between Karnataka and AP in the way Dasara is celebrated. On Ayudha Puja day people worship their tools which are used for their work. An Auto mechanic worships his tool box is an example.

    In Maharashtra, nine days are dedicated to Goddess Durga and on the Tenth day goddess Saraswati is worshipped.

     However Dussehera celebrations of Mysore are world famous.

    Here is an interesting article about Dussehra festivities in different places.

    Hi Usha, Navratri greetings to you and all the members of boddunan. In Maharashtra, we have Ghat Sthapana in our homes which basically celebrates the nurturing and sustaining nature of the the feminine power of Mother Earth and the Godesses Durga, Kali, Amba, parvati, Saraswati, Mahalaxmi etc. all of whom are manifestations of this divine, feminine power. Ghat is basically nothing but an earthern pot which is placed over a basket filled with earth in which seeds of nine grains are planted. The water from ghat permeates the soil and in nine days the grain grows into healthy saplings. It is a kind of tribute to earth that produces food and sustains us. On tenth day, the saplings are offered to god. It is a belief of the farmers that the healthier the saplings are, the better the rabi crops will be.

    In Gujarat, Navratri is celebrated with great fervour and Garbas and Dandiya Ras are performed to beautiful music beats. Girls are dressed in  colorful lehnga choli and spectators throng to these venues in large numbers. TheGarbas of Vadodara are especially famous. however there are no holidays in educational institutes which looks a biy odd as it is the young who dance late into the night.

    True. The Gujarati community in AP celebrate Navaratri. There I happened to witness these wonderful dances Garba and Dandiya which are originated in Gujarat. Because these celebrations are done in the evenings, it doesn't make any difference if there is no holiday on AP.

    But in Gujarat the Garbas start late and go  beyond midnight and girls and boys dance almost every night. So holiday can help but there is no demand and it is not an issue.

    Kalyani, here in Karnataka too they have this custom, not in Mangalore though..In north Karnataka they arrange dolls with the statues of Goddesses and also have a tray or matki filled with saplings kept along with it.

    Here in mangalore we have a sizeable Gujarat community mostly into business, who have been living here since many decades and they organise Dandia and Garba dancing , which I too attend. It is a lot of fun and ladies of all ages and sizes , not just Gujaratis and the youngsters have a blast for 9 days ..
