Since uploaded, the video has gone viral and managed to gather 40K views. “Very good and an inspiration to others," commented a Twitter user.

Every year Dussehra is celebrated on the 10th day of Ashwin month of the Hindu calendar. The name Dussehra originates from the Sanskrit words Dasha (ten) and Hara (defeat). It was on this day when Lord Ram defeated Ravan (the 10-headed demon king). Dussehra also marks the beginning of preparation for the Diwali festival which falls 20 days later.

Among the main rituals of Dussehra, people perform a theatrical enactment of Lord Ram’s life story which is referred to as Ramleela. Moreover, during the night of the festival, massive dummies of Ravan are stuffed with firecrackers and set to fire on the open grounds.

Sometimes along with the Lanka king, effigies of Meghnad and Kumbhkaran are also set ablaze. On the other hand in Gujarat, people celebrate the festival by doing the Garba, the famous folk dance. Both in Navratri and in Dussehra, they wear traditional outfits and enjoy the occasions to the fullest.
