October: Festival – Dussehra

Dussehra, Vijaydashmi or Ayudhpuja is celebrated with immense enthusiasm in India and Sri Lanka. The victory of Good over evil and burning Dashin or Ravan in the fire symbolizes this.

It all starts with the Ramayana- an epic which talks about the story of Ram, Sita and Lakshman the  holy book for Hindus. If you are interested for a read. Click on below:
