Happy Dusshera

Hello everybody.Today is Dusshera.I wish all my blog readers a HAPPY DUSSHERA.
Dussehra is a the festival of Victory of Good over Evil.
In India harvest season begins at this time and as mother earth is the source of all food the Mother Goddess is invoked to start afresh the new harvest season and to reactivate the vigor and fertility of the soil by doing religious performances and rituals which invoke cosmic forces for the rejuvenation of the soil.On the day of Dasha-Hara, statues of the Goddess Durga are submerged in the river waters. These statues are made with the clay & the pooja is performed with turmeric and other pooja items, which are powerful disinfectants and are mixed in the river waters. This makes water useful for the farmers & yields better crops.

Here is an e-card to wish all my readers a Happy Dusshera.
