In India, most of the festivals give us a message of the victory of good over evil in one way or the other, but the most important festival that marks this victory is Dussehra.
As per the Hindu calendar, Dussehra is observed on the Dashami Tithi, Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of the Moon) in the month of Ashwin. This year Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami will be celebrated on October 25 as per the Gregorian calendar.
The nine-day long festival of Shardiya Navratri concludes with Vijaya Dashami, also known as Dussehra. This auspicious day is also associated with Shri Rama. It was on this day that the son of King Dasharatha eliminated Ravana, who represented evil.
