Holding a sword in one hand and a shield in the other, standing tall was the effigy of Ravan, the “Evil one” who was eventually killed by Lord Ram and thus prevailed “Good”. This is the thousands old story and part of the Hindu religion and the day of Ravan’s death is marked significantly all over the world. For the Nairobians it was particularly sentimental because of the recent Westgate Attack where many Asian families lost friends and family, thus at the SSD Temple, General Mathenge Road on Sunday 13th October the day of “Dushera” was marked. The spirit of all that attending was high; because of the belief in God and that Good people always win. There were several food stalls and the competition for the famous meal “chole-bhatura” was high, not forgetting the crunchy delicious “jalebis”, “ice-gola” and lots of activities for the children including two bouncing castles, merry-go-round and the favourite candy floss.
