CM Baghel Celebrates Dussehra at WRS Colony

Raipur: The nine-day Navratri festival comes to an end with the celebration of Dussehra on Shukla Paksha Dashmi in the month of Ashwin. The Dussehra festival marks Lord Rama’s victory over Ravan, who had kidnapped Mata Sita. Thus, the burning of the ten-headed effigy of the demon king along with the effigies of Kumbhkaran (Ravana’s younger brother) and Meghanada (Ravana’s son) is a significant ritual of the Dussehra celebration, also known as Vijayadashmi.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel burnt the Ravan effigy in WRS Colony.
