I wish all the members a peaceful and prosperous year ahead at the end of Dasarah which is one of the major festivals in Bengal , Karnataka and other states as well. Basically it is about overcoming the evil forces outside and within ourselves so that there is peace,love and prosperity in the world... 


Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    It's one of the biggest festival in our part of the country. But I am not in India so it came and went without much activity. I wish all of the members of Boddunan a very happy Vijyadashmi. We call it Dashehra in UP.

    In Imphal, we celebrate it as Kwak jatra. It is believed that buying anything lustrous on this day brings prosperity.

    Wish you all and your families a prosperous and happy Dussehara!

    @Jabeen, its funny how certain customs are so similar in spite of the regions being miles apart. In Maharashtra too, we believe that buying lustrous things bring prosperity, so most people buy gold, jewellery etc. on this day. Also, large purchases such as new cars, homes etc. are done on this day.

    Here too those who can afford buy golden jewellery or invest in pieces of gold bars. Those who cannot afford gold settle for metallic worshipping items such as plates, incense burners, worshipping bells etc. In fact some people open their stall only for a day selling these things and make brisk bussiness.

    I have attended this festival in Mysore celebrated in a royal style. It was long ago when I happened to be in this city and was astounded to see the royal procession on elephants and various other great views. I made it a point to be in this city every time it was possible on Vijya Dashmi.

    The Mysore Dasarah is really huge , I too attended it a long time back and loved the various cultural activities that are organized as part of the festivities. Compared to that Mangalore one is on a miniscule level but it brings together people of all communities.

    In north it's an ongoing procession that goes on for ten days and ends on this day with burning effigies of Ravana, Meghnath and Kumbhkarna. Then we have couple of more festivals until Deepavali.
