Dussehra Ravan Dahan 2022: A 10-day long festival of Dussehra on Wednesday is ending on Wednesday (October 5) with the ‘Ravana Dahan’ celebration. Dussehra is one of the major Hindu festivals celebrated at the end of Navaratri every year. It marks the celebration of the victory of 'good over evil.' The festival is observed on the tenth day in the Hindu calendar month of Ashvin. This year too it has been celebrated with great pomp and show.
According to Hindu epic Ramayana, the day started being celebrated after Lord Rama defeated the ten-headed Ravan who abducted his wife Sita. People on this day burn large effigies of Ravan, Meghanath and Kumbhakaran.
