Happy Dussehra!!!

Dussehra is the holiday that celebrates the triumph of good/truth over evil. The defeat of the demon king Ravana by Lord Rama.  After 9-days of fasting, rituals and celebrations to honour Goddess Durga, the 10th day marks Dussehra and also symbolises the triumph of Goddess Durga over demon Mahishasura. Dusshera celebrations will be marked by burning the effigies of Ravana, Meghnada and Kumbhakarna at many places in India.

Celebrations and happiness to my Hindu and Indian friends/family both near and far.

  1. Happy Dussehra to you also. May you worries in your life burn with the effigy of Ravana.

  2. I clicked on this link in your archives because I try to educate myself about world culture and I have NEVER heard of this festival. I'm guessing it isn't celebrated much by the Indian community in the UK!

    Anyway I'm here from ICLW, do stop by and read my blog.

    1. I think the main ones we see here in the US are Diwali and Holi.

      Thanks for stopping by and I will check out your blog.
