Navratri is a nine-day festival celebrated in India. It is also celebrated in many other parts of the world.
The word Navratri means “nine nights” or “nine days”. It is celebrated for nine evenings and ten days, with each day dedicated to a different form of Devi – Durga, Lakshmi, Parvati, etc. The tenth day is called Dussehra and it celebrates the victory of good over evil.
The festival begins with Durga Puja when people worship Durga as a formless deity with ten arms carrying weapons to kill Mahishasura and his followers.
On Navratri days people do not eat or make food with onions and fast on the nine days or as per their wish. Many people enlighten the Akand Jyoti during all of Navratri.

- Maha Gowri
Ashtami is the eighth day of the Navratri and as you read above on this day we worship the Goddess Maha Gowri. Kanjak Poojan is the ritual that is followed after the Pooja. Many people In India do the Kanjak Poojan on the Navmi.
After the Kanjak Poojan, we Open the fast(Vrat) that we do during the Navratri. Chole and Poori are given to the Kanjank as a Bhog. We believe that the Kanjaks are the Goddesses that come to our home for Bhog.
There is no special rule of fasting or fruits etc. in this fast(Vrat). This story should be read after getting up early in the morning, taking bath, going to the temple, or meditating on Durga during Navratras at home.
This fast is especially fruitful for girls. By the grace of Shri Jagadamba Mata, all obstacles are removed. At the end of the story chant ‘Durga Mata Teri Sada Hi Jai Ho’ again and again. You can read the full Katha by clicking here.
