Whether you celebrate Dussehra as a celebration of the victory of lord Ram over Ravana or goddess Durga's victory over Mahishasura, the learnings from these mythological stories are almost the same. Ravana's ten heads is symbolic of his knowledge of 6 Shastras and 4 Vedas ranging from Mathematics, Yoga, Law, Astronomy etc. He was a great scholar, a capable ruler and a maestro of Veena. But he gets defeated by a simple man with an army of monkies. I respect Ravana for all his wisdom but his only mistake was to fall prey to the lowly desires like kaam (lust), krodha (anger), lobha (greed), moha (delusion,mada (pride) and ahamkara (ego). On the other hand, Ram kneels at Ravana's feet after killing him and requests him to share his wisdom with him. Ravana says, " I have very little time so I cannot share much but let me tell you one important lesson I have learnt in my life. Things that are bad for you seduce you easily; you run towards them impatiently. But things that are actually good for you, fail to attract you; you shun them creatively, finding powerful excuses to justify your procrastination. That is why I was impatient to abduct Sita but avoided meeting you." These are some lesson I learn from this story: Even if you are a monkey (symbolic of having lesser intellect than an evolved human being), you can win a war if you have faith, if you work hard and if your heart is in the right place. Even if you are the most intelligent person that ever walked in the face of the Earth, you are bound to fail if you are arrogant or devoid of the right value system. Always choose your wars carefully, and respect your opponent. There is something that you can learn from everyone around you. Do not take our mythological stories as given down to you by priests. Think about the hidden meanings and its importance in the present day. Ravana is worshipped in a lot of places and rightfully so. There is a Ravana and Ram within all of us, which we need to be aware of. Happy Dussehra everyone! May your year be filled with lots of love, sharing and gratefulness. #indiatravelgram #indianmythology #indianfestival #dussehra #durga #vijayadashami #indianbloggers #history #culture

Navratri hangover is gonna last for somedays for sure... #navratri (sweating of coz GARBA is a workout) #garba #navratri #navratri2018 #garbanight #navratrifever #traditional #life #indianfestival #indianculture
Traditions, customs, and celebrations are a foundation of any culture. Living overseas gives you numerous opportunities to connect with new people, explore and learn about local customs and traditions of a new culture. Soon, you learn to adapt and enthusiastically start participating in the local celebrations. But somewhere deep down you immensely miss the familiarity and the excitement of your own traditional festivals. This becomes more poignant when you want your child to also experience the same magic of and build-up to your own traditional festival. Celebrating your own traditional festivals is a way for your children to understand their own culture and traditions, and helps to develop their own identity. At the same time, a new culture offers children with infinite opportunities for learning and enrichment. To promote cultural awareness and sensitivity towards other cultures it is vital that children get ample opportunities to experience other cultures . This will not only help them understand the similarities and differences but also develop sensitivity and respect for different cultures. Thus, our Diwali boxes serve as a tool to introduce the festival of Diwali to children of Indian heritage as well as to children from all cultural backgrounds. The inspiration for creating a Diwali box comes from an idea of recreating the magic of an Indian festival for my little boy. A box that not only helps children connect with rich cultural Indian heritage but also helps parents relive their childhood; and at the same time , engages them and builds up the excitement of the approaching festival. The boxes come with facts about Diwali (which highlight its significance to different religions), festive crafts, recipes to prepare food, and games specially created to help children learn about the festival and the customs associated with it and much more . This Diwali if you are looking to help your children learn about a new culture or celebrating your own culture these boxes are for perfect for you ! Let’s nurture our children with positivity and celebrate our diversity!
And that's a wrap for Navrathri Gollu this year... To me having my own Gollu is more about entertaining folks, dressing up, having good food and just having fun! . . . . . . . . #navratri #gollu #navarathri #dussera #festivalfashion #indianfestival #saree #indianstyle #instafashion #instastyle #igfashion #igfashiondiaries #navratristyle #favoritetimeofyear #igindian #mystyle
Lets start living life and not missing life. Yes we are missing/slipping life. Either we trapped in the past or anxious about the future. What about now? The moment you just lived will become past in a second. The moment you are thinking about will be future soon. Then what about the present? Aren't we skipping that. Okay its easy to say to detach yourself from these too (because we have got so used to it) , but doing it? Hard stuff. So here's a practice. Whenever you become conscious that you are skipping present. Imagine an energy cord emerging from your stomach ( Solar plexus chakra , if you know ,or just the stomach if you don't) and joining that event/thought. Turn your hand into a blade shape and CUT THAT CORD! THRICE. Flick your hand thrice and say from your mouth CUT CUT CUT! Imagine the cord breaking and you being free , if the thought returns , cut it again! Once you start practicing this ,your game will become stronger, and more control over thoughts.

Dasahara, Dusshera, Dasara, Dussehra or Dashain names are pronounced differently but meaning is same “ End of Ravan “ this day is also called Vijayadashami . It is celebrated on the end of Navratri 10th day , some people believe that Goddess Durga killed a buffalo demon name mahishasur to help dharma & some people also believe that it is a victory of God Rama over Ravan after killing Ravan Rama goes back to his home Ayodhya which inspire to get prepared for the awaited festival Diwali which is celebrated after 20 days of Dussehra . Big effigies (model ) of Ravan is made and burnt afterwards that show destruction of evil in this world . #ravan #dashera #dusshera #navratri #navratri2018 #durgapujo #festival #indianfestival #indiangod #ram #diwali #effigies #durga #durgapuja2018 #devotional #dharma #positive #travel #blogger #backpacking #travelblogger #india #travelgram #travelersnotebook #backpackerstory #bloggerstyle #bloggerlife #goexplore #wanderluster #ritual

Each year I take someone from a different country to experience Indian culture during Ganesh Puja or Durga Puja. It feels so nice that people are curious about India and wanna be a part of these festivities. ❤ . #durga #durgapuja #durgapuja2018 #puja #puja2018 #indianfestival

Shubbho Bijoya! . . Sindur Khela (Bengali: সিঁদুর খেলা), literally meaning 'vermillion game', is a Bengali Hindu tradition where women smear each other with sindur on Vijayadashami, the last day of the Durga Puja. On the day of the Vijayadashami after the conclusion of the ritual worship, married Bengali Hindu women apply sindur on the forehead and feet of the goddess and offer sweets to her. Then they put sindur on each other's faces and offer sweets to each other. . . I participated in this a few years ago and absolutely love the custom! I get very emotional when I pray to Ma - T said he looked around and no one else was "weepy" 😂😂 This year we also danced after the ceremony. . . Traditional lu women wear white saree with a red border for this. While I have this, I didn't want to risk the colour of Sindoor not getting cleared after dry cleaning. So I wore a fuscia (or Vadaamalli as we Tams call it) coloured Kanjeevaram. I was about the only one who draped the saree in the Bong style - how I love this drape! NK time to change hairstyle or jewelry which was totally Tam style - so I looked like a cocktail mix of Tam and Bong - am saying Tong in my head 😆😆 . . This brought the end to the 9 days of Navratri, my most favourite festival of the year :) . . #navratri #navratri2018 #ilovehandloom #imissrunning #indianfestival #cocktail 😜#fabulous42 #mylifeasramya

People kill ravana every year but everyone knows that Ravana never dies, Ravana will not die till you not kill ravana inside yourself. #happydusshera #ravana #india #rajasthan #indianfestival #photographerlife #indianwriters #indianphotography #streetphotography #deepconcept #killevil #rajasthanphotographer #indiafeature #shotbymaddy
Durga Maa a symbol of love, she gives you strength. She is the protector. Prayer, culture and community is not everything that completes the spirit of this festival it is also about the art, music and people celebrating the same. It is about experiencing the colours of India and see people coming together. #power #strenght #colours #festival #culture #religion #love #spirituality #india #durga #durgapuja #photography #lookingthroughthelens #lenslove #community #indianfestival #indianculture
