Dissehra is a ten-day festival based on a lunar date with many important days and is known with many different names in the various regions in India. The festival symbolizes the triumph of good over evil.
An alternative story revolves around the victories of the goddess Durga against the diabolical forces that once walked the face of the Earth. Navratri, meaning nine nights, is a time to honour the deities and plead for their blessings and goodwill.
