What is Dussehra?


The Dussehra festival that marks the triumph of Lord Rama over the demon king Ravana is also known as Vijayadashami, Dashain or Dasara. Rama killed Ravana on that day. Dussehra, festival celebrated on the tenth day, marks the end of the nine days of Navratri.

At night, the effigies of Meghanad, Kumbhakaran and Ravana are stuffed with firecrackers and set alight.
