Asian Scene- Dushera at the SSD Temple, 7th October – The Star

The fight between good and evil is legendary and so is Lord Ram conquering Lord Ravan’s land of Lanka. This is known as Dushera and celebrated around the world with pomp and fire. There is a dramatization of the actual story of the abduction of Sita and rescue by her husband Lord Ram, his brother Laxman and their friend Lord Hanuman from the evil Ravan.

Thereafter the effigy of Ravan is lit on fire at sunset and so evil is destroyed. This entire act and fun of eating tasty food, playing the lucky dip, entertainment of DJ and singing was put together at the Shree Sanatan Dharam Sabha Temple in Nairobi on Friday 3rd October. Even the rain never kept ardent devotees and once again the festival of Navratri concluded on this 10th day of Dushera in style.
