Brent residents celebrate Navratri in style
Events took place across the borough during the nine days of celebration
The borough’s Hindu community have been celebrating this week at the annual Navratri festivities.
Events took place across the borough during the nine days of celebrations, which honours the Hindu deity Durga, the goddess of good triumphing over evil.
The celebrations, held from October 16 – 24, were entirely self funded after Brent Council announced last year they could no longer afford to fund community festivals.
Mahendra Pattni, secretary of Brent’s Hindu Council described it as a ‘hugely important’ event in their calendar.
