Dussehra Light Colors Our Rooted Indian Values

The long winding festival season has started around the country. The season is welcomed by the countrywide Navratri celebrations. This festival is celebrated through the 9 days in which the Shakti form of the goddess is worshipped. The tenth day is of course Vijaya Dashami. This is celebrated with equal enthusiasm in the north as well as south India. East India has its own form of worship in which another form of Shakti, Goddess Durga is worshipped with great fanfare over 5 days of revelry. Unlike most religious festivals, these days, both Navratri and Durga Puja, are more secular than just religious celebrations.

the fondest memories of the festival of Dusshera in my childhood year goes back to those 9 days every year when I used to hurriedly finish my dinner and rush to nearby park holding my father's hand and be seated in the front row to watch Ramlila performance . On the day of Dusshera once Ravana effigy was burnt, I vividly remember we used to stand in a neverending queue in a sweet shop with my dad waiting eagerly for our turn to buy those mouth watering Jalebis. as a grown up I believe kalyug's Ravana is more scarier and his deeds are ghastlier than Satyug's Ravana. hence we need to redefine the significance of Dusshera and make it more contextual thereby relating it to present day circumstances, rather than celebrate Ravana tragic's end year after year. very well written blog, thanks for sharing!!
