“Never let a man imagine that he can pursue a good end by evil means, without sinning against his own soul. The evil effect on himself is certain.” ~ Robert Southey
Dussehra is one of the most distinguished festivals of Hindus, which celebrates the victory of good over evil. The festival has special meanings for different people. In some parts of India, it is celebrated as the end of their 9-days fasting while in some parts it is celebrated as the defeat of Ravana by Lord Rama and some celebrate it as the destruction of demon named Mahisasur by Goddess Durga. Students of Nursery- Grade II enjoyed celebrating the festival through a range of activties- making a mask of Ravana, Ram and Sita, finger puppets and stick puppets. They also recollected the message of good triumphants over evil through the story of Dusherra, as narrated by their teachers.
