History of Dasara
  Next

Dasara also known as Vijayadashami or Navarathri is the most elegant festival of India and celebrated by Hindus and non-Hindus as well from across the world. It is celebrated on the tenth day of the bright half of the Hindu month of Ashwayuja or Ashwina, and is the grand culmination of the 10-day annual festival of Dasara or Navaratri. The celebration and its mode of conduct vary by region; however, all festivities celebrate the victory of the forces of Good over Evil. It is also considered to be an auspicious day to begin new things in life.

Dasara marks the day of triumph of Lord Rama over Demon king Ravana. On this day, Lord Rama killed Ravana in his Lanka.
Lord Rama was asked to go on exile because his stepmother, Queen Kaikeyee had tricked King Dasaratha into sending him to exile for 14 years. Lord Rama’s wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana went with him willingly.

Soon news of Lord Rama staying at an ashram while on exile spread rapidly. A demon, Shoorpanakha found her way there and demanded that Rama or Lakshmana marry her. When both brothers rejected her, she threatened to kill Sita, so that Rama would then be single again. Enraged Lakshmana then cut off her ears and nose.

Shoorpanakha’s brother was the demon King Ravana. Ravana was incensed to hear what happened to his sister, and kidnapped Sita to avenge the insult.
The Ramayana chronicles Lord Rama’s travels and deeds as he searched for his wife, and finally defeated evil King Ravana.
