Happy Dussehra 2020: The festival will end on October 25, Sunday with the celebration of Dussehra. The festival is celebrated as a sign of the victory of good over evil. According to the Ramayana, the day came after Lord Rama killed Ravana and freed his wife Sita from kidnapping. The day is also known as ‘Vijayadashami’. The word ‘Vijayadashami’ is made up of two words – Vijay ‘- meaning Vijay and ham Dashami’ which means ten, indicating the victory of Lord Rama over the ten-headed Ravana. To commemorate this day, large effigies of Ravana, Meghnath, and Kumbhakarna are lit on the open fields.
While the nine-day-long Navratri festival ends with Dussehra, people start preparing for Diwali which comes 20 days after Vijayadashami. On the other hand, in the eastern and north-eastern parts of the country, this day is celebrated as the victory of Goddess Durga over Durga Mahishasura, which also concludes the Durga Puja ceremony.
