Ravan Vadh – A Tradition of Dasara

On the day of Dussehra / Dasara, Lord Sri Rama killed demon king Ravana, who is also called Dashakanta.

To commemorate the defeat of Ravana and the victory of good over evil, people started celebrating ‘Dush-hara’ (the defeat of Dashakanta – Ravana).

In the evening of Dasara, Ravana Vadh is ceebrated throughout India.

Large effigies of Ravana is burned. For this crackers are used.
