THE Singapore Gujarati Society (SGS) held four days of Navratri celebrations from Oct 15 to 18.

The society has been holding the event at the same venue, the Singapore Swimming Club, for 14 years running.

This year's event was its best, said its president Biren Desai. Tickets for all four days were sold out ahead of the event.

What also made this year's Navratri celebrations even more special was the fact that more young members of the Gujarati community were involved.

There was maximum participation from SGS YUVA, the recently-formed young adult wing of the society.

Its members took on many important positions in various committees to spearhead the event, which involved the efforts of more than 150 people over three months.

The vibrant atmosphere of the celebrations, which involved dancing (above) and feasting, allowed everyone a chance to interact with each other.

Said Mr Desai: "This Navratri, we also saw an increased number of non-members and non-Gujaratis participating in the festivities. This is integration at its best."
