Why is Dussehra celebrated?

Before celebrating any festival, it is important to know about that festival well and this question is very important as to why the festival is celebrated. It is important to know about Dussehra as well. The history of this festival in India is very old. When Lord Rama killed Ravana in Tretayuga, Dashami date was at that time. Henceforth this day was celebrated as Dussehra or Vijayadashami.

During the exile Lord Rama went for catching deer on the insistence of Sita but he did not return for long, then Sita sent Lakshmana to see Shri Rama. During this period Laxman made Lakshman Rekha outside the hut and asked Mata Sita not to come out of it. However, Ravana came to Mother Sita in disguise of the monk and started asking for alms from him. Ravana called Mata Sita out of Lakshman Rekha by deceit and then after killing the mother, she brought her mother to Lanka. Shri Ram and Lakshmana thereafter reached Lanka with the help of Hanuman, Sugriva and Vanar Sena. Ravana had to lose his life due to the kidnapping of Mother Sita. Lord Rama defeated Ravana in battle and brought Sita to Ayodhya safely. On the arrival of Ayodhya, lamps were lit all over Ayodhya and this day was later celebrated as Diwali.
