Let’s have a look at them.
Why sit ideally and bluntly? It is Navratri, dress up with your favourite dress or say lehenga choli and flaunt yourself. Ensure everyone in the house dress up each nine-day. Click selfies and do at home a photoshoot. Meet everyone virtually after dressing up and you will feel the aura of the occasion.
Why feel sad if you cannot visit your near and dear ones. Everything can be done online. Arrange zoom meet or google meet and celebrate together. Laugh and talk and even sit on the puja together but virtually. It is the best way to stay connected and share moments that later in become memories worth remembering.
Do the Garba
