Dusshera is the nine day festival in which India celebrates the vanquishing of Evil at the hands of Good. As diverse as India is, it is natural that Good and Evil take various forms in different parts of the country.
Central and north India celebrate Ram's victory over the ten headed Ravana. Ram Leela productions -- enactment of episodes from the Ramayana -- take place every night. And at central maidans of towns across the north alarming effigies of the demon are burnt to the merriment of crowds.
ln the east, in West Bengal, Durga Devi conquers Mashishasura. In Mysore, revered Goddess Chamundeshwari does the honours. In the west folks fete Amba Ma.
But by the evening of October 7, all across India, Evil will have been summarily disposed of.
