The celebration of Navratri in Indian context is purely spiritual. It is celebrated in the context of the believe that goddess Adi Shakti took the beautiful form of Goddess Durga. This form was taken to bring an end of the Demon or Asura known as Mahishasura.
As per the mythology, it is said that Mahishasura had a boon from Lord Brahma, that his end would now come in the hands of any male individuals or masculine form of divine incarnation. In other word no God can sly him to bring his end. Considering his dedication, lord Brahma had no other option but to bless him with the desired boon. This made Mahishasura lead a life in misconception that he is always invincible. Later, he kept harassing the Dev-Lok (aboard of lord Indra) and took the same by force. Considering the havoc created by the Asura, lord Indra and his team offered their prayers to goddess Adi-Shakti. Further, looking at their dedication, Goddess Adi-Shakti agreed to help the side of divinity.
