Happy Dussehra (Vijayadashami) 2019 Wishes Images, Messages, Photos, and Status: Vijayadashami or simply Dashami, officially marks the end of the Durga Puja festivities. On this day, people take part in a grand send-off for the Goddess, in a way that is part celebratory, part sombre.
For Bengalis, the day begins with the traditional Maa Boron — that is, prepping the Goddess for her journey back to Mount Kailash. The highlight is the sindoor khela, for which married women get together and smear some vermillion on Goddess Durga, and on each other. Nowadays, this ritual has become more inclusive. Men, unmarried women and even widows get to participate.
The immersion or the visarjan also happens on the day.
A major Hindu festival, Dussehra also marks the victory of Lord Rama over Ravana, following a fierce battle. In many parts of India — mostly in the northern states — Ravana effigies are burnt and mood is largely celebratory. The day signifies the triumph of good over evil.
Keeping with the spirit of the day, here are some wishes, pictures and messages that you can share with your loved ones. Happy Dussehra to you!
* May this Dussehra burn all the gloom and misery on Earth and bring you happiness and prosperity. Happy Vijayadashami!
* It was today that good won over evil. May this day clear all hurdles from your life and start new era of well-being. Happy Dussehra!
