While October might be the month of spookiness and Halloween for some, for Indians, it is the month of celebration and festivities. This is because Navaratri, or the 9-day festival is usually in October, and Navaratri means Garba. If you didn't know, Garba is a type of dance that originated in Gujarat, India, where devotees dance in circles around a statue of a goddess. Garba is so exciting for so many people, and even being outside of India, we have adopted it.

It has turned into a social event where anyone can come and enjoy dancing with their friends. Every time you step out into the dance floor, there are some thoughts you get as you dance away. Last year, I wrote an article describing the thoughts that come to one's mind when doing Garba. This year, I decided to write about what it's like to finally get back to the Navaratri season and be excited about Garba. Without further ado, here are thoughts everyone at Garba gets... part two.
