Back to photostream


A festival to celebrate the victory of the forces of Good over Evil.

Also considered to be an auspicious day to begin new things in life.

It's a 10 day celebration practiced all over india.


(Ravan-Dahan is practiced in the city of Hyderabad since a long time, a huge effigy of Ravan is set up in an open ground and the devotees after taking the blessing from Durga-Temple, attend the ritual to mark the victory of the good over the evil).


Wishing all my flickr friends a Wonderful VijayaDashami.
