Dussehra celebrations in Indore will be on low-key affair under Covid shadow

Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami marking the end of both Durga Puja and the nine-day long Navratri festival will be celebrated in Indore on Sunday. Celebrated with much fervor, the day symbolizes the victory of good over evil when Goddess Durga killed Mahishasura, the demon king. It is also said that this was the day when Lord Rama defeated Raavan. In Indore, usually the celebrations are seen on a grand scale as more than 100 feet tall Ravana is set to fire in Chimanbagh and other open grounds.

This year, due to Covid-19 outspread, the Ravana burned is only 21 feet tall. The 100-feet tall Ravana usually burns for 30 minutes, and 21-feet tall is expected to burn down in 7 minutes. Last year, the largest 111-feet tall Ravana was burnt on the Dussehra ground, which was witnessed by more than 60,000 people. Ravana will be burnt in about 300 places in the city including Dussehra Ground, GPO, Tilak Nagar, Chimanbagh Maidan, Vijay Nagar, Ushaganj High School Ground, Qila Maidan, and Kalani Nagar. From these, about 10 places will have a grand effigy of Ravana of 21 feet. Sachin and Aakash Gaur, organizers of Rambagh Dussehra Utsav Samiti, shared that the ceremony of burning will be only symbolic. This year, public has not been invited to attend Ravana Dahan.

Covid-19 protocols: Due to the corona, this time Ravana will not have any procession before the burning. The usual firework show will not be organised at Dussehra Ground, Chimanbagh. As per district administration orders, protocols for controlling the outspread of coronavirus must be strictly followed. Hence, wearing mask will be compulsory and no crowding will be allowed.
