Ram Navami also records the ninth day of Navratri where volunteers provide food for the needy. Hindus also perform Kanya Puja rituals on this day, in which 9 girls are invited home and revered as Hindus believe they are a symbol of Devi. The prasad containing sooji halwa, kala chana and puri is also prepared and given to girls after the puja tradition.
Ram Navami is one of the major Hindu festivals and is celebrated in many ways. Some devotees bathe and dress in small statues of King Rama and place them on a bed to mark his birth. The lamp is lit in front of the statue and the kheer is prepared as an offering to God. Many volunteers celebrated Navami by giving food to the needy.
