The special assembly was presented on Navadurga (Durga Puja Navratri). NavaDurga which literally means the nine forms of Goddess Durga, constitute, according to vedic scriptures, the manifestation of Durga in her nine different aspects.

Each goddess has a different form and a special significance. Nava Durgā, if worshipped with religious fervour during Navaratri, it is believed, to bestow spiritual fulfilment.
