Navami is celebrated the day before Maa Durga defeated the buffalo demon Mahishasura. In other words, it is believed to be the final day of the fight between Maa Durga and the buffalo demon, Mahishasura. In West Bengal and especially Kolkata, Navami is celebrated with great enthusiasm.
The rituals for Durga Navami start with a holy bath followed by a special Shodhasopachar puja (a ritualistic worship of the Goddess). ‘Sandhi Puja’ is also held at the juncture of Maha Ashtami and Maha Navami. Considered as one of the main ritual of Durga Puja, it occurs at the last 24 minutes of Ashtami and the first 24 minutes of Navami. In Bengali, it is called as ‘Sandhikhan’.
