Dron Nawami

The winter is fading and the glory of Surya Narayan is increasing. The ninth day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Magh is known as Dron Nawami. Best wishes to all on this year's Dron Nawami.

Dron Nawami plays a special role in the annual religious pilgrimage from Shalinadi to Bajrayogini. This pilgrimage is known as the Madhav Narayana festival. On the Dron Nawami pilgrimages eat tasmai or the kheer.

Who is Dron charya ?
Droṇ, also referred to as Dron charya, is a major character of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. In the epic, he serves as the royal preceptor of the Kauravas and the Pandavas. He is one of the primary counsellors and warriors featured in the epic. He is a friend of Sukracharya, the guru of the asuras, as well as Mahabali.

As he was not born in womb, he was gestated in a vessel outside the womb and that's why his name remained Dron.

Dron means a vessel in Sanskrit.
This Nawami is named after Guru Dron the Guru of both the Kauravas and the Pandavas. Dron, who is considered to be the reincarnation of Dev Guru Brihaspati, had a unique knowledge of martial arts and weapons. Good luck to everyone in this Nawami named after Dron who has a special role in Mahabharata.
