Dussehra marks the tip of Ramlila, a quick model of the story of Rama, Sita and Lakshaman, and remembers god Rama’s victory over the Ravan. On Dasara, towering effigies of Ravan, Ravan, Kumbhakarna and Meghanada symbolising evil, are burnt with fireworks, marking evil’s destruction. This competition is widely known reminding the victory of Good over Evil.
The competition of Dussehra additionally begins the preparations for Diwali, one of many essential festivals of lights, which is widely known twenty days after Dussehra.
