History Of Dussehra

In North India, it’s the epic battle of Lord Rama against Ravana, symbolizing the victory of good over evil. In the south, Mysore dazzles with lights as Goddess Chamundeshwari defeats Mahishasur, another demon, celebrating the same theme. Other regions honour Goddess Durga’s conquest of Mahishasur during the nine-day Navaratri festival, followed by her immersion, marking her return to the divine world after establishing righteousness on Earth. These diverse stories remind us that Dussehra is a festival of courage, righteousness, and the ultimate victory of light over darkness.

Dussehra paves the way for the start of Diwali 2024 preparations, which falls just twenty days later. Diwali, one of the most celebrated festivals, honours Lord Rama’s return home after defeating Ravana, and it’s all about spreading light and joy in our lives.
