According to Hindu mythology it was the day when Lord Rama killed Ravana, the demon King of Lanka to rescue his beloved wife Sita, after cutting ten heads of Ravana, on the tenth day of the ensuing battle. Hence, to celebrate the day, colossal effigies of Ravana, his brother Kumbhkarna and son Meghnath, filled with crackers and surrounded by fireworks, are burnt to signify the end of evil. Besides this, play enactments of Ramayana, known as Ram Leela are also preformed across India preceding Dussehra. These plays are based on the epic Ramayana, which describes the life saga of Lord Rama. Ravan’s ten heads represents ten bad qualities of a person-

  1. Lust – Kam Vasana
  2. Anger – Krodh
  3. Attachment – Moh
  4. Greed – Lobh
  5. Over Pride – Mad
  6. Jealousy – Matsarya
  7. Selfishness – Swarth
  8. Injustice – Anyaay
  9. Cruelty – Amanavta
  10. Ego – Ahankar

The festival is celebrated in different ways in different parts of India in various ways. In Tamil Nadu, it is celebrated as Golu.

The story goes like since the goddess Durga needed tremendous power, all other gods and goddesses transferred their power to her and they all stood still as statues. Golu ends on Dusshera. In Northern parts of India like Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand and western Bihar, it is a tradition to plant barley seeds in earthen pots on the first day of Navratri.
