The colour orange has everything to do with happiness and energy. Just the kind of vibe you experience at a wedding. The fourth incarnation of Goddess Durga is Kushmanda. The luminosity and brightness of this Devi, with her bewitching smile, light up the sun.
She is powerful enough to live in the Sun and its wondrous shades of orange. That’s why orange is a part of the 9 colours of Navratri!
