Indian Festivals are threads that bind all of us together. The idea of victory of 'Dharma' over 'Adharma' is the principle base for most of our celebrations. Watch this Dusshera Special by Prāchyam, and celebrate the oneness we share through our customs and traditions.
The tenth day of Ashwin, known by different names, is celebrated with great fervor across the length and breadth of Bharat. It is known as Dussehra in the North and West, Vijayadashmi in the South and East. The auspicious day lays witness to various important events that shape the history of Hindu culture- Lord Rama's victory over Ravana, Maa Durga's victory over the demon Mahisasur, the annihilation of the Kuru clan by Arjuna- all of them signifying the triumph of good over evil.
A variety of customs and traditions are practiced in our country to symbolize this triumph. But what unites us is the idea of the victory of Dharma over Adharma. The constant belief in the victory of Dharma, will strengthen our resolve. It will guide us to a better understanding of our roots, traditions, culture. Follow your Dharma, fulfill your duties, with utmost sincerity.
Our ancestors sacrificed their present to preserve our future, which makes us duty-bound to contribute towards the idea of a civilization state- a state that symbolizes the reward for our continuous struggle and perseverance.
Freedom was not easy. Do your bit. Make it worth. Jai Hind!
