The tenth day of Navratri, also known as Dussehra or Vijayadashami, is celebrated all over the country with great fervour. The idea is to celebrate the victory of good over evil by burning the effigy of Ravana. The king of Lanka, considered the evil in Ramayana, was defeated by Lord Rama, who represents the good in the world. Therefore, humongous effigies of Ravana are set on fire throughout the country, every year on the day of Vijaya Dashami. The day falls on the tenth day of Ashvin in the Hindu calendar marks the end of the nine-day festivity of Navratri.
