Happy Dussehra Wishes
Happy Dussehra Wishes and messages are important part of traditional Indian culture of wishing and sending messages to friends and loved ones during Dussehra . Festivals are an important part of any culture. They not only give color to our lives but also give us an opportunity to wish for our near and dear ones. And India is a land of festivals, where many festivals are celebrated around the year. Each festival has its unique significance. Each festival is a message to us to give up bad qualities and imbibe good virtues.
Dussehra – the festival of victory of truth over evil
Dussehra is one such festival. Celebrated 20 days before Diwali in the Hindu month of Ashvin, Dussehra is a symbol of the age-old belief that truth always triumphs over evil. Darkness cannot overshadow light and ignorance cannot overcome knowledge. So, the festival teaches us that we should always follow the path of the ‘dharma’ (righteousness). The festival also teaches us that we should give up bad virtues of jealousy, hatred, and laziness and fill our hearts with love and compassion for all. And we should always be active in life.
Dussehra is celebrated to commemorate the victory of Lord Rama, over the demon king, Raavan, who had kidnapped Sita, and put her under captivation in Lanka.
Dussehra in various parts of India:
Dussehra comes immediately after the Navratri of Ashvin month. Navratri is celebrated 2 times a year – one in the summers, called the ‘Chaitra Navratri’, and the other during autumn, called ‘Ashvin Navratri’. It is during the ‘Ashvin’ Navratri that people perform Garba Ras and Dandiya in western and central parts of India and worship goddess Durga. During the same time, in eastern and north-eastern parts of India, people celebrate Durga Puja, where they worship Maan Kaalika, another form of Goddess Durga. They install huge idols of goddess Kaali in huge pandals. In northern parts of India, during these 9 days, ‘Ramleela’ is performed over makeshift stages, where people enact important scenes from the life of Lord Rama, as given in the Ramayana, the holy book of the Hindus.
After the end of 9 days of Navratri, the tenth day is celebrated as Dussehra or Vijayadashmi. In Bengal, it is celebrated as ‘Bijoya Dashmi’. While in eastern and north-eastern parts of India, people take the idols of the goddess Kaalika for immersion, elsewhere in India, people visit temples in the morning, and in the evening they visit local fairs. At many of these local fairs, huge effigies of Raavan, his brother Kumbhkaran, and eldest son Meghnaad (also known as Indrajeet, as he had defeated the king of devtaas, Lord Indra) are erected, which are burnt to signify the victory of good over evil.
In Eastern parts of India, where people celebrate Durga Puja, on the day of Vijayadashmi, they take the idols of goddess Durga in a grand procession. People sing, dance, chant Vedic mantras and throw gulaal over each other. Then the idols are immersed in water. This is called ‘visarjan’ and it marks the end of the festival.
After this, people visit their friends, family members, and relatives. Younger kids greet the elders in the traditional manner by touching their feet and seeking their blessings. People of the same age, hug each other, exchange sweets and convey wishes for Dussehra.
