Hey! 🙂 Today is Dussehra also known as Vijaya Dashami, Dasara, or Dashain. The tenth day of Navaratri marks the end of fasting and is celebrated as Dussehra. The name Dussehra is derived from Sanskrit Dasha-hara literally means Dashanan ravan (Name of devil & in short Dasha and Hara (defeat)) referring to Lord Rama’s victory over the ten-headed demon king Ravana. This festival is celebrated by burning effigies of Ravana, Kumbarkaran and Megnath. This is an Indian festival that celebrates good forces over evil forces.
The day also marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasur. Dasha-Hara is also known as Navratri or Durgotsav and is a celebration of Durga’s victory. This is a time for celebration, a time for victory of good over bad.
So here’s wishing all the readers of my blog, a very Happy Dussehra! 🙂 May Lord Rama always keep showering his blessings upon you, May your life be prosperous and trouble free throughout…God bless you all! 🙂
