All male Garba tradition going on in Vadodara
People across the country have been seen enjoying Garba in their own unique ways and traditions. In the courtyard of the Mata Ambe temple in the Mandvi area of Vadodara district of Gujarat, an age-old tradition of ‘all-male garba’ is followed, in which men perform garba and women sing while sitting inside a jharokha. This custom is being followed in the temple for almost 400 years. Temple priest Durgesh told ANI on Sunday that the male garba does not mean that women are not allowed to participate.
According to the priest, it was not safe for women to perform garba in this temple late at night 400 years ago. Earlier, men would dress up in saris and dupatta and in place of women in this temple courtyard, women used to sing Garba dance, women used to sing inside the vents. He said that now women can also participate in it, but they do not participate directly to maintain the age old tradition. Instead, they join the ceremony by singing along. According to the priest, due to the pandemic, the festival was not held last year so only singing was allowed.
Pujari said “But this time people are coming. We are really happy. We urge people to follow government orders and COVID-19 protocols by wearing masks, using sanitisers and practicing social distancing.”
