    1. Dear Pardeep, It is most beneficial to perform Navratri pooja during the coming Navratri. I would recommend that you travel to a place like Mangalore and stay there for the duration of 9 nights during Navratri. Consult a pandit there and he will help you perform the pooja. If you do that, we are pretty sure you will start seeing positive changes in your life. All the very best.
