Jamnagar, heritage theme this Navratri : Sameer Shah

JAMNAGAR: Navratri is celebrated in myriad ways. Summair Sports Club in the city is celebrating the vibrant festival with a heritage theme this
year.

The organizer has given a heritage touch to all parts of the ground. The entrance resembles Khambhaliya Gate Of Jamnagar, dancing area has structures like the entrance gates of the palace and seating arrangements are truly royal!

The background of the stage is decorated like Darbargadh of Jamnagar. The entire theme has been planned by committee members of the club.

“More than 300 photographs were taken of various historical places in the city by Sameer Shah at different times,” said Raju Sheth, president of the club. These were used to create the heritage look.

“We have tried to combine our ancient culture with modern Navratri,” said Parag Shah, convener of the Navratri Mahotsav at the club. More than 1,000 families play raas garba at the 74-year-old club. It has been organizing the festival for the last 28 years.
