For some people, Navratri is a cause of noise pollution – even though the 1o pm deadline is in place it is often breached. So what do we do? The answer is silent Navratri.

The world’s first ever silent Navratri is going to be held in Mumbai this year. The Navratri named ‘All Ratri’ will be held in Mumbai’s Malad (West) area at Rajmahal Banquets.
For crazy Navratri fans, 3 hours aren’t enough to play garba. So Amboli Anbardekar came up with the idea of a silent Navratri. Normal music will be played from 7-10pm at this place and then after that from 10:30pm to 2 am, silent garba will be played. The entry fees for this venue is ₹1500.
Where did Anbardekar get this idea from? From Bollywood.
The idea is inspired from the ‘Break-up’ song of the Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai starrer, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. We see in this song that they put on headphones and dance to the music, thereby not creating any noise pollution.
The concept of silent music concerts is not new however this will be the very first time that it has been applied for Navratri.
What is left to see is how this idea will be executed – will the headphones stay in place during the crazy dance steps of garba which the youth often indulges in? Will this venture become successful? That is left to see.
