Pretty explosive stuff!
Dussehra is a Hindu festival celebrated all over India. It is also known as Vijayadashmi (‘Vijay’ meaning ‘victory’ and ‘Dashmi meaning ‘tenth day), as it is believed that it was on this day that Lord Rama killed the demon-king, Ravana and rescued his abducted wife Seeta. It signifies the triumph of good over evil and the legendary triumph is reenacted in an explosive style.
