Today, 7 year old Darshali Agarwal from Bhilwara, Rajasthan remembers the excitement that entails Dusshera for many parts of the country- watching Ram Lila, burning of giant effigy, enjoying the fare in massive grounds, and a very important lesson for us.
Happy Dusshera from Bhilwara Festival with Sara Bookosmia Darshali Agarwal is a 7 year old girl with an ever smiling face. She loves to read and listen to bed time stories. She’s very creative in her imagination . She studies in Grade 2 in Witty International School, Bhilwara (Rajasthan).
I love Dusshera because it is a very exciting festival.
On this day, I get to see a very big statue of Ravana in a big ground. He looks so beautiful decorated with colourful papers and glitters. Most amazing thing is his ten heads. Wow, a man with ten heads!
On this day, I enjoy the fun fair with my family. And I really jump with joy when Ravana burns and the crackers pop out of it.
Sorry Ravana. We burn you. But my mom told me that one has to pay for their wrong deeds. It is not just you, but a message to burn all the bad thoughts inside us.
Thank you dear King of Lanka ,because of you, we enjoy a fun filled day called Dusshera. Also it makes us all think, even if for a day, about how we can let go of the bad in us.
