Dussehra is a popular festival celebrated by Hindus all over India. It is also known as Vijayadashmi. It is celebrated in the month of October. It is celebrated all over India.
It is celebrated in the memory of Lord Rama: Lord Rama killed the demon-king, Ravana and won over Lanka, his kingdom. In other words, it signifies the triumph of good over evil.
Dussehra is celebrated for ten days. Many dramatic clubs play mammilla on Rama’s life. Thousands of people gather to see the mammilla. We can learn many lessons from Ram Lela.
Big Effigies of Ravana, Meghnad and Kumbhkarna are set fire on Dussehra day. The festival comes to an end after ‘Bharat Milap’. Hindus call Lord Ram as Maryada Purushotam.’
