Dussehra – Celebrating Victory

Hindu festivals have a long tradition of lifting our spirits and bringing rays of sunshine and hope back into our lives. I am not sure if they were designed in such a way, but they seem to be the perfect panacea.  Dussehra is just such a festival, celebrated in September / October, the exact date is set per the lunar calendar each year.  As the weather slowly changes from summer to autumn, the days start to get shorter, making the morning air chiller, and our spirits damper .
