    Dussehra is celebration of Victory over evil. There are three stories for celebrating Dussehra

    Victory of Lord Rama over the evil king of Lanka, Ravana.
    Satyabhama wife of Lord Krishna killed demon Mahishasura .
    Pandava’s hidden their weapons in the branched of Jammichettu (a sacred tree). This tree was guarded by a snake. On Vijaydasami Pandava’s recollected those weapons on this day and conducted pooja to those weapons.
    But why we conduct navaratri’s only nine days and decorated Goddess with different avatars? Here is the answer. ‘nava‘ means nine ‘ratri‘ means night so the nine days of Navaratri are classified as per the three basic qualities of tamas, rajas and sattva. Tamas means fierce , first 3 days is Tamas. Rajas means Lakshmi related thing. Sattva means Saraswati or education.

    In India Dussehra is celebrated in almost all the places but with different qualities and principles. Dussehra is most famous for Bathukamma in Telangana. People in Telangana in south India celebrate nine days of Bathukamma by playing and dancing around a stake of colorful flowers arranged like a little mountain. There is also another story for Bathukamma. Bathukamma means Lakshmi Devi. Bathukamma is daughter of King Dharmangada of Chola Dynasty. Bathukamma survived many hurdles and got married finally. So young unmarried girls pray for Bathukamma during Dusshra navaratris to fulfill their wishes of getting married to their soulmate.

    Some people who have businesses, manufacturing units and also many organisations like Indian army, navy, police departments etc. do Ayutha Pooja to their weapons and machines.
