Day Out in Gujarat: Garba-Dandiya,

The delegation was part of the six-day celebration of the nine-day Navratri festival in Gujarat that took place in Vadodara on Saturday

It is a matter of pride that we have come here with officials of different countries,” said External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar, who was in Gujarat at the time

As the world inches closer to normalcy in the post-pandemic era, the festivities that were a mellow affair in the last few years are back in full swing

Danish Ambassador Freddy Svane thanked Jaishankar for organizing such a memorable visit to "great, good and green Gujarat". Russian envoy Denis Alipov said

Also, Jaishankar took the visiting diplomatic contingent to the 18th-century architectural marvel Lakshmi Vilas Palace in Vadodara, one of the world's largest residences.

The Navratri week has begun and the joy of festivities is clearly visible among people across the country. From doing Garba inside a Mumbai local train to Bengaluru airport

This video was shared on Twitter by ANI and shows a panoramic view of a huge mela ground where people were seen doing Garba. The brightly lit clip is quite impressive.
