My Homework about Navratri

Celebrating Navratri Festival

Navratri Festival is celebrated by Hindus with great devotion for 10 days. Idol of Goddess Durga is worshipped during Navratri. People stay awake the whole night during the nine days of Navratri and play Dandiya and Garba. This festival is celebrated by all Hindus and has special significance in Gujarati community.

Festival of Navratri is full of lights, joy and festivity. Hindus celebrate this with devotion and enthusiasm throughout India. The celebration is carried on for ten days and the last four days are very important. Navratri means nine nights and so the tenth day Goddess Durga, who is worshipped throughout the nine days, is immersed in holy water after pooja. Each and everyday has its importance and meaning. People worship Goddess in three forms and try to enhance their physical, mental and spiritual practice in these nine days.

Navratri festival is celebrated twice a year, though the one that is celebrated in September or October is well-known and celebrated with extreme passion and fervour. Some Hindus believe that every night one form of Goddess is worshipped while some believe that three forms of Goddess are worshipped and they are the trinity of God. The celebration varies from one state to another although the dedication and devotion remains the same all over India.

Navratri Celebration and Fasting

Some people eat only fruits and drink milk during the entire nine days and nights.

Some eat meal one time a day and that meal should be satvik, which means vegetarian meal which is prepared without the use of onion and garlic.

Fasting is not compulsory and even after few years if the devotee feels that he or she is not capable of continuing fast during Navratri, he or she can discontinue also.

It is good to keep mind, body and thoughts pure during the time of Navratri.

If possible try to light a Jyot in front of Goddess Durga’s statue or at least a picture throughout the nine days and nights.

Start the prayers with praying for Lord Ganesha and then perform aarti in front of Goddess Durga.

Men do not shave or cut their hair during this period.

People do not wear black clothes during this period and avoid keeping leather goods with them.

People worship young girls and feed them with sweets and different types of traditional and delicious food items. They consider them as form of Goddess Durga.

Since it is believed that Goddess is fond of red flowers and red colour, women and young girls prefer wearing clothes in red and yellow colour.

Fasting commences on the ninth night of Navratri.

People pray to Goddess Durga to destroy the evil during Navratri. They ask help and strength from the Goddess to fight against the evil and protect the Hindu dharma. In West Bengal, men and women celebrate Navratri festival as Durga Pooja and worship huge idols of Goddess Durga. In Gujarat people perform traditional dance which is known as Garba almost throughout the night. They wear colourful dresses and mostly Indian traditional dresses are preferred.

Chaitra Navratri is celebrated after Holi and during Chaitra Shukla Paksha. This starts from the first day and ends on the ninth day which is also celebrated as Ram Navmi. The worship of Goddess on the eighth day is very important and auspicious and is significant in both Navratri festivals.

Dussehra or Navratri is also celebrated as Lord Rama’s victory over the Demon king Ravana. He was the ten headed king of Lanka and had kidnapped Rama’s wife, Sita. The main objective is, however, to celebrate the victory of good over the evil.

Women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom was a movement to give women the right to vote. It finally succeeded through two laws in 1918 and 1928. It was formed in 1903 and led by Emmeline Pankhurst.
She was married to Richard Pankhurst (1879–1898).

Early Life

Emmeline Goulden was born in Manchester, England, in 1858, on either July 14 or 15 [her birth certificate said July 15, but the document wasn’t filed until four months after her birth, and Goulden always stated she was born on July 14].

Goulden, the eldest daughter of 10 children, grew up in a politically active family. Her parents were both abolitionists and supporters of female suffrage; Goulden was 14 when her mother took her to her first women’s suffrage meeting. However, Goulden chafed at the fact that her parents prioritized their sons’ education and advancement over hers.

This is were I got the “Early life” section from…⇑

5 FACTS ABOUT EMMELINE PANKHURST AND THE SUFFRAGETTES:

  1. The National Union of Women’s Suffrage, known as the Suffragist Movement, was founded by Millicent Fawcett. It used only peaceful means of protest.
  2. The Suffragette Movement was founded by Emmeline Pankhurst. Its tactics were more violent and were viewed by many as unfeminine.
  3. Many people, including many women, did not believe it was right for women to have the vote. They campaigned against the extension of suffrage.
  4. Some Suffragettes handcuffed themselves to railings and broke shop windows to get the police to arrest them.
  5. When imprisoned women went on hunger strike the police attempted to force feed them.
  6. It was not until 1928 that women gained the vote like men.

This video explains all about Emmeline Pankhurst. After years of protesting, Women finally got the right to vote. In the same year,in 1928, Emmeline passed away, but outside the Parliament, where all the protesting happened, there is a statue to mark her life’s work…

A new game

Hi everyone today’s blog post, is about a game I have been working on for months! It is a platformer! I thought I would explain the story and how it works here, as it would be something interesting to write about.

Ok so I made the platformer on scratch. I have always wanted to make one so I was searching tutorials on scratch, and I found one by a scratcher called @Djpro it was the only one that helped me achieve making a platformer so if you want to see the tutorial it’s here Click this!

I saw so many platformers all different and unique but two that really inspired me were by @ipzy and @frostpuff . Here are the links to their games.

Click this

Click this

So i created this My very first platformer! This took about five months to create probably because it’s my first platformer but I hope you like it. So what happens is you are a new candy in Candy village so you explore through the city and have to pass the obstacles to get to the end of the village, so your task is pretty much to explore the whole city. Comment if you think that I should make another platformer and what it should be about!

I hope you like this blog post and until next time GOODBYE!
