Dastkari Haat Samiti
New Delhi, India

The Sanjhi or Jhanji deity is worshipped during navratra, the nine day festival following the moonless amavasa day of asauj, in September/October. The Sanjhi deity represents the nine main devis, goddesses, of the hindu tradition. Earth, cow dung, terracotta, lime, turmeric, colour and cloth for dressing the goddess are used. The creation of the image is a part of a ceremonial nine day event to invoke the blessings of the goddess upon everyone in the village. The second map shows old villages giving way to a modern Gurgaon.
