Vijayadashami

Every year, at the completion of Navaratri, Vijayadashami is celebrated. It is also known as Dasara, Dashain or Dussehra, and is a prominent Hindu holiday. It is celebrated on the 10th day in the month of Ashvin, which is the 7th month in the Hindu Calendar. It is based on Luni-Solar (position of the moon and the sun) calculations and occurs between September-October months in the standard Gregorian calendar.

In different areas of India, Vijayadashami is commemorated and observed for distinct causes. Vijayadashami represents the culmination of Durga Puja in India's Northeastern, some Northern, and Eastern areas, commemorating the victory of Goddess Durga over Rakshas Mahishasura (the monster in the form of a buffalo) for restoration dharma (righteousness). The event is known as Dussehra in the Central, Western, and Northern states. In those parts of India, it commemorates deity Rama's triumph over the evil king of Lanka, Ravana, and symbolises the conclusion of Ramlila in certain areas. Arjuna alone devastated over a million troops and vanquished all the Kuru warriors, inclusive of the great Bhishma; the father-son duo, Drona and Ashwatthama; one of the greatest archers, Karna; along with Kripa, on the very same day, demonstrating the triumph of good over evil.

Processions with clay sculptures of Durga, Ganesha, Lakshmi, Kartikeya, and Saraswati are carried to a nearby waterway or ocean, followed by songs, dancing, and chanting, following which the figures are submerged in water for disintegration and goodbye. On the other hand, on Dasara, the colossal effigies of Ravana, symbolising evil, are set ablaze with pyrotechnics, signaling the end of evil. The celebration also kicks off the countdown to Diwali, India's most major light festival, which takes place twenty days following Vijayadashami.
