This year, Dussehra is being celebrated on 24th October and this day signifies the end of Navratri, the festival of nine days and nine nights.
For ages, Dussehra has been the festival, that celebrates the truimph of good over evil. One of the main festivals in India, which people celebrate with much fervour and joy.
The word Dussehra is derived from dasha, which means ‘ten’ and hara, which means ‘defeat’ in Sanskrit.
Also known as Vijayadashmi, Dussehra is observed, when Lord Ram defeated the demon king Ravana and Goddess Durga saved everyone from the evil hands of Demon Mahisasura.
Dussehra or Vijayadashami is widely celebrated all over India with great enthusiasm and fanfare. In many places, the effigies of Ravana, Meghnad and Kumbhakaran are burnt to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.
In eastern parts of India, the statues of Maa Durga are carried and immersed into the Ganga river and married women play and put sindoor over each other while wearing the famous, traditional red and white color saree also known as lal-paad saree.
The festival marks the beginning of the preparation for Diwali and is also considered to be an auspicious day to commence anything new and meaningful.
