|Dussehra 2012, 24th October, 2012
In the Hindu month of Ashwin and Kartik, Hindus observe ten days celebration of Dussehra.
Fasting, lighting candles, bursting crackers are some of the significant parts of this celebration which commemorates the victory of Lord Rama over demon Ravana and also the triumph of Maa Shakti over Mahishasura. In short we can say Dussehra is the celebration of Good over Evil.
This celebration starts in Navaratri and ends with ‘Dusshera’, the tenth day festival observed with pomp and gaiety all over the world by the Indians. Dussehra is also known as Vijaya Dashami, because of the victory of Ram over Ravana. On this day in Satya Yug, Ram (the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu), defeated and killed the great demon and King of Lanka, Ravana. People start preparing for the festival much before the day comes. In the Northern part of India, people celebrate this day by performing Ramlila. In the Eastern state of West Bengal it is known as ‘Bijoya Dashami’, the last day of Durga Puja which is celebrated with much fun and merriment.
