In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Navaratri is celebrated as Bathukamma Panduga. The word Bathukamma means ‘Mother Goddess, Come alive’ where the goddess is prayed in the form of seven concentric layers of flowers stacked like a ‘Gopuram’, on top is a turmeric idol that represents the goddess Maa Gauri who is the ‘Life Giver’. The colourful flowers and the turmeric symbolize life, prosperity and eternity. The goddess is welcomed on the first day of the Navaratri and for the next 9-days, the house is filled with special folk songs, dance and celebration by the womenfolk. On the tenth day, Bathukamma is immersed in the nearby water bodies, bidding adieu to Maa Durga who will return the next year to a grander festival.
