So, it was my one of the best Dussehra festival I experience. Dussehra festival take place at Jammu city in two venue one is Dussehra ground (Apsara Road Gandhi Nagar Jammu) and other is Parade Ground. I went to Dussehra ground and took my seat on the terrace of the house opposite to the ground to experience the festival. In this festival God Rama, Goddess Sita and God Lakshaman passes through the crowd and the person enacting Ram aims an arrow to burn the effigies of demon Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghnath one by one. But before that Lord Hanuman rescued Goddess Sita from SriLanka which was home to Demon Ravana also effigies the SriLanka. After the effigies of SriLanka the effigies of Meghnath, Kumbhakarna and Ravana buried by God Rama. After the effigies it is believed to carry sweet to home. I also carried Jalebi to home as a sweet dish.
