Hail the deities for they didn't let dharma fall.
The Goddess of all Gods slayed the evil and revealed the true forms of feminism.
Lord Rama killed Dashand who was a form of evil in his life. Again dharma won over evil/adharma.
But if you'll ask me what dussehra or vijayadashami meant for me, then i'll say, dussehra for me was waking up early to go find Nilkanth bird, get sonpatti and jalebi on our way back. Dussehra was a day when i'll get ready in the evening to go out with my family and have mathura chaat while we watch a statue of ravana burn.
So, dussehra for me was always family time
