Dussehra Vijaya Dashmi

8 October

Dussehra
Dussehra falls on the last day of Navaratri>. Dussehra literally means that which takes away ten sins. This Hindu festival is celebrated all over India to mark the defeat of Ravana by Lord Rama. Dussehra symbolises the triumph of good over evil. The ‘Ramlila’ – an enactment of the life of Lord Rama, is held during the nine days preceding Dussehra. On the tenth day, effigies of Ravana, his son and brother -Meghnath and Kumbhakarna, are set alight.

Dusshera is a major Hindu festival celebrated at the end of Navratri every year. It celebrates Sri Rama’s victory over Ravana. Towering effigies of Ravana are burnt with fireworks symbolizing the triumph of good over evil. Dusshera begins the preparation for Deepavali, the festival of lights, one of India’s most important and widely celebrated festivals.
