In Gujarat and nearby Hindu communities, the Garbo significance is celebrated through performance arts on all nine days.The most visible is group dances from villages to towns called Garba accompanied by live orchestra, seasonal raga, or devotional songs. It is a folk dance, where people of different background and skills join and form concentric circles. The circles can grow or shrink, reaching sizes of 100s, sometimes 1000s of people, dancing and clapping in circular moves, in their traditional costumes, at the same time. The garba dance sometimes deploys dandiyas (sticks), coordinated movements and striking of sticks between the dancers, and teasing between the genders.Post dancing, the group and the audience socializes and feasts together.Regionally, the same thematic celebration of community songs, music and dances on Navaratri is called garbi or garabi

This is a quick painting done by using alla prima technic.Alla prima also called wet-on-wet technic is used mostly in oil painting. In which layer of wet paint applied to previously administered layer of wet paint. this technique required fast way of working, because the worked has to be finished before the first layers have dried .
Traditionally, a new layer of oil-based paint is applied to most parts of a painting only after allowing previous layer to dry completely this drying process can take from several days to several weeks, depending on the thickness of paint. In contrast, work performed using " alla prima " can be carried out one or more sessions( depending on the types of paint used their respective drying times). and it is common for such a work to be finished in only one session or " sitting".
