Navratri also called as Navaratri or Navarathri means nine nights in Sanskrit, nava meaning nine and ratri meaning nights.During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are worshiped. The tenth day is commonly referred to as Vijayadashami or "Dussehra."In South India we have the tradition of having Golu or Kolu at home which is a toy festival celebrated during the festival of Navratri.This is an exhibition of various dolls and figurines in odd (usually 7, 9, or 11) numbered tiers (padis).When people come to a to see Kolu, usually they are given prasad including sundal or pongal etc(the offering given to God that day), kumkum and a small bag of return gifts. These are only given to girls and married women.
