May this #Dessehra bring peace, joy and prosperity in your life!
It’s time to celebrate the victory of the good over the evil. Let’s continue with the same spirit.
Dussehra or Vijaya Dashmi is celebrated at the end of Navratri, a day after Maha Navami. In the northern and western states of India, the festival is celebrated as Dussehra, marking the end of “Ramlila” and Lord Rama’s victory over Ravana. In the southern, eastern and northeastern states,Vijayadashami marks the end of Durga Puja, remembering goddess Durga’s victory over the buffalo demon Mahishasura to help restore dharma. During Vijayadashami celebrations, the idols of Goddess Durga is immersed into the water. A procession is carried out amid chants and music. For Dussehra celebrations, the towering effigies of Ravana symbolizing the evil are burnt with fireworks marking the evil’s destruction. Dussehra in a way also marks the onset of preparations for the festival of lights – Diwali, which falls twenty days after the festival.
