India is a land of festivals. The harmony of different cultures and traditions is best experienced during festivals in the country. One can experience ‘Unity in diversity’ during Dussehra celebrations that take place in every state of the country. The festival is a triumph of good over evil and of light over darkness. Also known as Dasara, Vijayadashami, Durgotsav, the tenth day of Navratri is not only celebrated in India but also in Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. The day is devoted to celebrating the defeat of the demon king Ravana by Lord Rama. It is believed that Ravana was killed by Lord Rama on this day as revenge against the cruel act of kidnapping Goddess Sita by the demon king Ravana. The entire country, from North to South, dons a celebratory look. Whichever part of the country you are in you will experience a different Dussehra altogether.
In northern India, plays and dance performances known as Ramlila are organized describing the life of Rama for around nine days. On the final day of Dussehra, statues of Ravana are burnt everywhere in India, and in Delhi, the event is attended by political dignitaries in the Ramlila Maidan.
People of the Hindu faith observe Dussehra through special prayers and food offerings to the Gods at home or in temples throughout India and some people also believe that it is a lucky day to start a new project, venture or journey on Dussehra. The festival is celebrated in very joyful manner, especially kids are crazy about this festival. The main motive of Dussehra however is to spread good cheer and celebrate the victory of good over the evil.
