Most of them are usually of the view that any pious activity should not be commemorated in this time duration. However, readers should know that Panchak does not restrain the observation of holy activities. Navratri is the festival, during which the epitome of power or Shakti is worshipped.

People establish urns (Kalash) in their homes in this duration and pray to the Goddess with their pure heart and mind. They are also seen organising Hawans.

People should not panic about this at all. Navratri is beginning on Wednesday, 25th March. The planet Mercury happens to be the ruling lord of Wednesday, which is also the significator of intellectual abilities and finances. Chitra Shukla Paksha’s Pratipada Tithi also considered to be the beginning of the Hindu religious New Year. In such a situation, natives can acquire a lot of economic resources and wealth on account of their intellect and wisdom.
