On Camera, People Wear PM Modi Masks In Surat While Playing Garba

New Delhi: 

A video of people wearing Prime Minister Narendra Modi masks and playing Garba in Gujarat’s Surat has gone viral on social media.

In the video, men and women dressed in ethnic wear were seen playing the traditional Gujarati folk dance in full vigour.

The women were dressed in ‘Ghagra Choli’, a colourful three-piece dress, and the men wore kafni pyjamas and ghagra — a short round kurta above the knees — with a pagadi on the head.

Garba is a high-energy folk dance that is performed with passion and fervor during Navratri. Men and women dance in a circle around a big lamp or the statue of Goddess Shakti. Garba originated from the Sanskrit word ‘Garbha’ which means womb.

Devotees wear colourful costumes while performing Garba and dandiya. The Garba songs are themed around the nine forms of Goddess Durga.
