Children of Junior Kg. celebrated Dasshera festival on 22nd October, 2012. As part of the Dasshera celebrations, children were dressed in ethnic clothes. Teacher explained to the children about the importance of the festival and also informed that Dasshera is widely celebrated in different parts of India.
Word Dasshera is derived from Sanskrit words “Dasha” & “hara” meaning removing the ten (10) evils. Dasshera is celebrated on the 10th day, after the Festival of Navaratri, also known as Durgotsav, as in the first nine days the Divine Mother Goddess Durga is worshipped.
Dasshera signifies several auspicious occasions in Hindu mythology such as the victory of Ram over Ravana and victory of Durga over Mahishasur. Dasshera is the festival of Victory of Good over Bad and God over Devil. 
As part of the celebrations, children drew the picture of Ravana in their scrapbook. Children also performed ‘dandiya’ to several festive songs. Children had great fun and entertainment.
