Weekly Image of Life: Celebration
The tenth day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashwin is celebrated as Vijaya Dashami or Dussehra. It marks the end of the Maha Navratri or the nine days of Durga Puja. The day is basically the celebration of the victory of the Mother Goddess over evil demons named Shumbh and Nishumbh. So it is a celebration of righteousness over evil and according to legends, the day is marked by several other such victories of good and other factors.

Hindus celebrate this festival worldwide by observing social gatherings and offering sweets and gifts to relatives, friends, and neighbors. The festivity also marks the beginning of the harvest season and prayers are said and rituals are observed to invoke blessings from Mother Earth for a good harvest, peace, and prosperity to all.

We celebrated Durga Puja in Visakhapatnam with our friends. Now we are waiting for other festivals.

 

At sea beach, all gather to immerse Durga Idol in water and to bid farewell to Goddess.
