The Dussehra is celebrated in the Aswin month of the Hindi calendar. Dussehra is celebrated to mark the victory of good over evil.

Dussehra Festival In India:

Dussehra is celebrated on the 10th day of Navratri. Navratri is 9 days of celebration to worship goddess Durga who also slayed the demon Mahishasura and established peace on the earth. On the 10th day of this Navratri festival lord Ram had killed the 10-headed demon king Raavan, who had abducted his wife Sita deceitfully.

Since very early times the starting of Navratri signified the starting of Ramlila nautankis which are enactments of the life of lord Ram.

During these 9 days fairs are organized all over India attracting tourists from all over India and foreign. These fairs reflect the rich heritage of India and the local artisans get an opportunity to display their talents. Folk dance and music are an added attraction. These fairs are held in large open gardens or fields so that on the 10th day huge effigies of the demon king Raavan is burnt with great zeal and fervour. The people burn this larger-than-life effigy of Raavan to celebrate the victory of good over evil

Dussehra, also known as Vijaya Dashmi is thus considered an auspicious day to start something new. Burning of the effigy is a symbol for people to burn off all the evil of the spirit and soul to purify one from within. Dussehra is a pious day when good prevails and evil is condemned. This feeling of victory is celebrated with great joy and happiness.
