Dussehra or vijaya Dashmi is a popular Hindu festival, celebrated with enthusiasm all over India. It is observed on the tenth day of the bright half of Ashvin. Vijaya means Victory and Dashmi means tenth, so vijaya Dashmi is the other name of Dussehra victory on the tenth.

According to Hindu mythology, on Dussehra, lord Rama, the seventh incarnation of Vishnu, invaded Sri Lanka and came out victorious, after defeating Ravana. Dussehra in Sanskrit also means taking away the ten sins. The ten heads of Ravana, represents these ten sins and Rama destroys them.
