Ragini Khanna speaks on commercialization of festivals

Ragini Khanna speaks on commercialization of festivalsShe is always known for her frank talks, Ragini Khanna does not fear to speak her heart out. Her take on the ongoing Navratri celebrations is completely different from what the other people perceive. First of all she is totally disappointed by the rampant commercialization of the festival.

According to Ragini, the actual way to celebrate Navratri, is to, have an idol of Maa Durga kept in the middle and people dance around the same. But how many of these so called garba mandals know about the tradition and follow it. Also one is supposed to dance to the tunes of folk numbers, related to the goddess. But looking at the current scenario, the latest item numbers from Bollywood movies are played, with the sound breaking all the sound barriers.

Ragini Khanna feels that instead of love for the festival, nowadays people participate in the festival for vulgar display of their extravaganza. They indulge in unnecessary display of their costumes, jewelry and makeup. Ragini herself prefers going dressed up in simple attire.

People attend the festivals just to have a good time, be it Navratri or Ganpati festival. She repels at the thought of people being total drunk at the time of Ganpati visarjan on the last day.
