It's the seventh day of Navratri 2021 and devotees all across the country will be worshipping Goddess Kaalratri. The seventh form of Maa Durga is known to remove darkness and negativity from the lives of people. She also symbolizes purity, divinity, and of course feminine power. Her name is divided into two parts 'kaal' meaning death and 'ratri' for night. The Hindu mythology says that when Mata Parvati gave up her golden avatar to kill Shumbha-Nishumbha, she began to be called as Kaalratri. She sits on a donkey and has four arms. The top right is in Varada mudra while the bottom hand is in Abhayamudra. The upper hand on the left side carries an iron fork while the lower hand has a Khadag. The destroyer of all bad spirits, this avatar happens to be the most dangerous but also very auspicious.
