A story about Navratri
There a very powerful demon named Mahishasura. He wanted to be immortal. And due to that desire. He did austerity of Brahma. Brahma was happy with his austerity. And after giving him visit, then he can ask for whatever he wants.
Then Mahishasura asked for his boon of immortality. Then Brahma said after hearing such thing of Mahishasura. Whoever is born in this world is sure to die. Therefore, except life and death, ask for whatever you want.
Mahishasura said after hearing this. Alright Lord, then give me such a boon that. My death is neither at the hands of any god or demon nor at the hands of any human. If it is in the hands of a woman.
On hearing such thing of Mahishasura, Brahma said Aastastu. And went away. After this Mahishasura became the king of demons, he attacked the gods. The gods terrified. However, he unitedly faced Mahishasura.
In which Lord Shiva and Vishnu also supported him. But all suffered defeat at the hands of Mahishasura. And Mahishasura ruled Devlok. All the gods worshiped Adi Shakti with Lord Vishnu to protect them from Mahishasura.

During this time of Navratri, every person has a supernatural feeling in the environment. There is also a scientific argument that in the daytime, the sun’s rays prevent the sound waves and radio waves from advancing.
Radio is a living example of this. You may have also realized that it is difficult to catch low power radio stations during the day, that is, listening. Whereas even the smallest radio station can be easily heard after sunset.
Its scientific theory is that just as the sun’s rays prevent radio waves during the day, in the same way the thought waves of chanting mantra also get interrupted during the day. Rishi-munis have told the importance of night much more than day.
Hours in temples and the vibrations of the sound of a conch shell make the atmosphere devoid of germs. This is the logical secret of the night.
Keeping this scientific fact in mind. The sentries send their powerful thought waves into the atmosphere with determination and high concept, their accomplishment i.e., wishing fulfillment is complete, according to their auspicious resolution, at the right time and according to the right method is.
