Every year Dussehra is celebrated on the tenth day of Shukla Paksha of Ashwin month and this time according to Hindu calendar, this year the festival of Dussehra i.e. Vijayadashami will be celebrated on 15 October. On the basis of religious beliefs, Lord Rama killed Ravana on this day and on this day Maa Durga killed Mahishasura. That’s why Dussehra is also called Vijayadashami because on this day the victory of good over evil happened.
