Dussehra, also known as Vijayadashmi or Dashahara, is regarded as one of the most important festivals in our country. This day is not just significant because it marks the victory of Lord Rama over the ten-headed king Ravana but also because of the whole lot of childhood memories that it evokes.

Remember your parents giving you special toys just so you don't misbehave with them in public? From bow and arrow to colourful masks, you demanded it and you had it!
