Look whom I met in Navratre in Mumbai
Falguni Pathak who is known for her musical compositions, mainly her music based on traditional Gujrati folk music making her also known as the Dandiya Queen. She is also recognised as a ‘Queer Icon’ and referred to as the “Indian Madonna” an outcome of her unconventional dressing style.
Devotees celebrate Navratre with dandiya and garba in Gujarat and Mumbai, whereas in North India Jagran,Mata Ki Chauki and bhandara are organized.
