Vijaydashami, or Dussehra signals the start of the festive period. For children, Dussehra is an exciting festival, celebrating the triumph of good over evil, reveling in the grandeur of a Ram-Leela and of course the excitement of the burning the Ravana. As we grow older, the idea of the festival changes. But the feelings remain the same.

We asked some people what were their fondest memories of celebrating Dussehra. The responses have us real pumped up for the celebrations!
