We have many festivals in our country Nepal. Dashain is the greatest of our festivals. It is celebrated in the month of Aswin in Nepali date and in English date between Septembers to October. It marks the victory of the goddess Durga over the Demon Mahisasur. It signifies the victory of Good over Evil.
The festival is observed for a fortnight. The first nine days are called Navaratri. The goddess Durga is worshiped on these days. People worship the image of the goddess in their houses. They also visit the temple of the gods and goddess. They make sacrifices of birds and animals in front of the image of the Goddess Nawadurga. The last two days of Navaratri are observed with great Festivity.
The tenth day is called Visaya Dasami. On this day, People put on new and fine clothes and visit neighbors’ and relatives (superior) to pay respect and get blessings from elders. The elder persons put Tika on the fore head of the younger. After putting the Tika on The fore head they also put green plant grown with hybrid seeds of rice, maize, barley and others. This green plant is jamara and used as the flower in Dashain. Seniors gives blessing to the superiors and also feed them with delicious food. This continues for five days.
Dashain is an occasion of great joy for all the people. People indulge in feasting and rejoicing. They clean their houses, put on new clothes, and taste various types of delicious foods. There is public holiday in this festival for all the schools, colleges and offices. Among all these reasons visayadasahami is known as the auspicious occasion. On this day, people embark on new enterprises and start their journey. This is an occasion of peace and goodwill.
Some times Dashain is one of the greatest hazards for the poor ones, who cannot afford the money for the occasion. Some of them take loans from the banks and some of them take loan from friend and relatives. This will automatically makes them to carry burden due to Dashain.
