Happy festivities everyone, your best friend Sara here! Navratri, Durga Pooja, Dusshera, Ayudh Pooja …what a time of the year, for celebrations throughout the country!


Some of us celebrate Dusshera by burning the effigy of Ravan. 10 year old Aaditri Paul from Kolkata urges us to look within for our own Ravan, while burning the effigy outside.

Aaditri story of Dusshera festivals with Sara Bookosmia

10 year old Aaditri Paul from Kolkata is full of creativity. She is fond of writing and always tries to share her feelings through it. She loves dancing, sketching and doodle art.  She goes to DPS Megacity, Kolkata and is a student of Chamatkar.



Dusshera is one of the most important Hindu festivals.

Also known as Vijayadashmi among, the festival teaches us to be good like  Rama and not to be arrogant of our intelligence. Dusshera also spreads a  festive mood in the air. People also burn crackers and eat delicious food and  sweets. They wear new clothes and children get holiday from their school. We  spend a good time with our family, eating and enjoying. Some people decorate  their houses and make beautiful rangolis. Dusshera and Diwali are both celebrated with great enthusiasm, happiness and love.


Dusshera is a festival of  victory of good over evil. Ravana symbolizes ego and Rama symbolizes happiness and goodness. We should also help those who dont have enough, as they also have the right to celebrate the festival with happiness and  excitement. This way we can bring a smile on their faces too.


I  believe that we should not kill, but conquer the Ravana inside us. Dusshera   also means to me that woman is no less than man. Dusshera teaches us to be good and honest in our deeds.
