Dussehra was celebrated in several parts of the country to commemorate the victory of Lord Ram over Ravana, symbolising the triumph of good over evil.
After two years of low-key celebrations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Delhi's famous Luv Kush Ramlila committee organised the famous Dussehra event with full pomp and glory.
In Uttar Pradesh, devotees celebrated Dussehra amid heavy rain. In Kanpur, Ravana effigies were to be burnt for the final day of Navratri celebrations
With the end of Dussehra begins preparations for one of the biggest festivals for Hindus in India – Diwali – which falls 20 days after Vijayadashami.
In some regions, the celebration – also known as Vijayadashami – celebrates Goddess Durga's triumph over the buffalo Demon Mahishasura.
Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and 'Bahubali' star Prabhas were invited as chief guests of the mega event.
