On the final day, the devotees will worship the ninth form of Goddess Durga – Maa Siddhidatri. Her name literally translates to the one who grants or fulfils every kind of wish; Siddhi means supernatural power or meditative ability, and Dhatri means the one blesses or gives that power. After worshipping the nine manifestations of Maa Shakti, the tenth day will be celebrated as Vijayadashami or Dussehra on September 30.
