Bangalore, Sep 23 (ANI): People donated toys for orphan children in Bangalore during 'Bombe Habba' festival which is celebrated by arranging toys and dolls in a rack consisting of nine steps indicating "Navratri".

Some private companies organized the event during "Bombe Habba".

People were requested to donate toys of Bombe Habba and the donated ones were kept in a rack.

"Bombe Habba is a tradition of Karnataka where every household in Karnataka sets up these dolls and these kind of structure in their houses so we decided to connect the tradition with special cause. We take these dolls and donate these to orphanages because in the orphanages the children don't have anybody to celebrate the festival with so we thought if we can bring smile to their faces nothing like it, "said Rahul Balyan, one of the organizer.

Scores of residents donated dolls and other toys to bring smile to the orphans kids.

"I am feeling very happy because some children will not be having dolls so I am donating I am feeling very happy," said Jeevitha, a girl who donated a doll.

"Navratri," which literally means nine nights, is observed twice a year. It lasts for nine days in honour of nine manifestations of Hindu goddess Durga and fall in the months of April-May and September-October. (ANI)
