Dussehra (Vijay Dashami, Dasara) is a Hindu festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil.
It is believed that Dussehra marks the Victory of Lord Rama and the end of the ten- headed Ravana. As per yet another lengend, Dusshera is celebrated to mark the defeat of Mahisasura and the victory of Goddess Durga. The story says that asuras or demigolds had become powerful and tried to defeat devas and capture heaven. Goddess Durga came to rescue. She took up the form of Shakti to kill Mahishasura. Riding, on a lion, she fought Mahishasura for nine days and nights. On the tenth day, she killed Mahaishasura. In East India, life – size clay idols of Goddess Durga depicting her slaying the demon Mahishasura are set up, coinciding the Navratri and Dusshera festival.
Dussehra is celebrated throughout the country with great zeal and enthusiasm.
