Ramah was the prince of the town of Ayodhya, his wife’s name was Sita and he had a younger brother, whose name was Lakshmana. King Dasaratha was the father of Ramah. Thanks to his wife, Kaikeyi, the three had to leave the city of Ayodhya for fourteen years in exile. During the same exile, Ravana kidnapped Sita.
Ravana was the great king of Chaturveda, who had a golden Lanka, but he was very proud. He was a very devoted man to Shiva and called himself the enemy of King Vishnu. In fact, Ravana’s father Visharva was a Brahmin and his mother was of a demonic tribe, so Ravana had the same knowledge of Brahmin and demon power and these two things were proud of Ravana. To end King Lord Vishnu took the Ramavatar.
Rama fought Ravana to reclaim his Sita, while the monkey army and Hanuman Ji supported Rama. In this battle, Ravana’s younger brother Vishishi also supported Lord Rama, and eventually, King Rama killed Ravana and shattered his pride.

It was a custom to visit each other’s house on Dussehra, now these customs have taken the form of mobile calls and internet messages.
Shami did not go empty-handed, so Shami used to carry letters, but now instead he has started carrying sweets and gifts, due to which it has become a festival of competition with wasteful expenditure.
The legend behind the burning of Ravana was remembered so that everyone should get a message that ego destroys, but now various types of firecrackers are burst, due to which the wasteful expenditure has increased. At the same time, the problem of pollution is increasing and the accidents are also increasing.

Humans have spoiled their form. According to the Puranas, the form of all these festivals was very simple. There was no pretense in him but faith in God. Today they are getting so far from their foundation that bitterness is being filled in the mind of man. Humans have started seeing them as a waste of time and money.
All of us should understand this reality and celebrate festivals simply. Festivals also have a special contribution in keeping the economic system of the country smooth, so we should celebrate all festivals.
