History of Dussehra Festival


Vijayadashami is also called Dussehra (meaning tenth day) in the north and west of India, and is celebrated with great joy.

Dussehra celebrations have a long history and are believed to have their origin in several legends.

When Is Dussehra?

In India, ten days of celebrating Durgapuja are observed in Ashvayuja (September-October) during the first half of the month. Vijayadashami (Tenth Day of Triumph) is the title given to the tenth day.

When Is Dussehra in 2021?

It is believed that on this day the Hindus celebrate the 10th day of Ashvina, a month that overlaps with the months of September and October.

In 2021, Dussehra will be celebrated on 15th October (Friday).

Why Is Dussehra Celebrated?

During Dussehra, the Hindus celebrate with great enthusiasm. One of India’s best festivals occurs in October. At this festival, the forces of good triumph over the forces of evil.

Dussehra’s origins can also be traced back to the epic Ramayana. According to conventional wisdom, Rama’s killing of Ravan plays a significant role in the celebration.

Rama, the divine incarnation, spent fourteen years in exile under his father’s orders in the epic. While Rama and his wife Sita lived under this hardship, Sita was abducted by the ten-headed Ravana, leading to many hardships for Rama and both of them.

Ram (the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu) killed Ravan on the same day as Dussehra in Satyug, who had abducted Sita. Rama fought ten days to rescue his wife with the help of his brother Lakshman, his follower Hanuman, and a monkey army.

Due to the devotion of Lord Rama, Dussehra has been more associated with the worship of Goddess Durga than Lord Rama. There is another meaning of the word “Dussehra”, which is “Dasa-Hara”, which means that Lord Rama cut off the ten heads of Ravana. In Northern India, Dussehra commemorates Lord Rama’s victory over Ravana.

How Dussehra Is Celebrated In Different States Of India

Across the country, Dussehra is celebrated in different ways. Parts of the rite are devoted to good triumphing over evil, honoring gods and goddesses. The greatest significance of Dussehra, however, lies in Lord Rama’s victory over demon king Ravan in the Ramayana, the great Hindu epic

There are melas and Ramlilas, which enact scenes from the Ramayana. There is an enactment of Ravana Dahan on the 10th day. Ravana, Meghnath, and Kumbakara’s effigies are afterwards burned.

In addition to food stalls, games stalls, Ferris wheels, and other fun activities, the melas are held at various Ramlila grounds across the country. Popular celebrities attend the Ramlila celebrations and light up the celebration areas with bright lights.

It is considered as Durga puja by people in West Bengal, Bihar, and Odisha who wear red sarees and wear vermilion to mark the end of the festival. Bengalis celebrate this occasion by immersing their idols in water bodies and singing traditional songs.
