Why Is Bijay Dashmi Celebrated?

Dussehra or Bijay Dashami is celebrated to mark the victory of good over evil. 

On Bijay Dashami, Maa Durga's idol is also immersed after four days of festivities. 

It is also during this time that Maa Durga kills Mahishasur. 

Women in Bengal play with sindoor and bid goodbye to Maa Durga. 

It also marks the end of Navratri & people burn giant effigies of Ravana. Bijay Dashami also marks the victory of Lord Ram.
