The tenth day of Sharad Navratri is observed as Vijayadashmi, to mark the ‘vijay’ or victory of Lord Rama over evil King Ravana. It is popularly known as Dussehra. On this day, it is believed that Lord Rama killed the evil king Ravana, thus ending his wicked rule in Lanka. It falls on the tenth day of Ashvin month of Hindu calendar. Usually, it is observed in the month of October-September of the Gregorian calendar. Every year, people burn Ravana effigies to signify the eternal victory of good over evil. In some places, Ravana is also worshipped for his skills and knowledge. He was an erudite of all the Vedas and well-learned in the field of astrology. Thus, he is worshipped for his knowledge and skills. This year, Dussehra is falling on 30th September, 2017 on Saturday.
Another importance of this day is that, in Eastern parts of India, it is celebrated as the last day of five-day long festival Durga Puja. It is celebrated to commemorate Goddess Durga’s victory over the buffalo demon, Mahishasur to help restore Dharma. It also marks the end of Ramlila, with the burning of Ravana effigies in open grounds. Alternatively, the day also holds importance as it is considered to be a day to worship the Goddess of knowledge, Saraswati. Things like books, pens, ledger, arms, weapons, etc are worshipped during the morning prayer.
To celebrate this day, you can send Dussehra messages, quotes, greetings and images to your friends and family over WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter.
