Navratri is here, and people across the country are gripped in the festive fever. And the festivities are incomplete without donning traditional clothes and dancing to desi beats. Now, as most people are busy perfecting their Dandiya and Garba steps to the tunes of Falguni Pathak and Amit Tridevi, a group of girls have been dancing to a special song penned down by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
As the celebrations are in full swing, several visually impaired girls from Andh Kanya Prakash Gruh in Ahmedabad danced to a song written by the prime minister. The song titled ‘Ghume Aeno Garbo’–in his mother tongue Gujarati– was sung by Aishwarya Majmudar and Ami Parikh, news agency ANI reported.

Touched to see this.
The spirit of this Garba has been brought to life by these daughters!
Hope everyone’s having a blessed Navratri. https://t.co/8JjwIJvdTL
