New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: Dussehra, also known as Vijaya Dashmi, is a festival celebrated across the country to mark the victory of good over evil. Observed on the tenth day of Ashwin month, Shukla Paksha (the brighter phase of the Lunar cycle), Dussehra was celebrated at many places on October 25, but is also being celebrated today at a few places.   

The day also marks the end of the festivities of the nine-day festival of Sharad Navratri. On Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami, Goddess Durga, who epitomises the feminine power defeated the demon king Mahishasura marking the triumph of good over evil. On the same day, Lord Ram defeated and killed demon King Ravana, who kidnapped his wife Goddess Sita.

Thus, the day symbolizes the victory of Dharma over Adharma. As people gear up to celebrate Dussehra, here are some wishes, quotes, WhatsApp and Facebook status to share with your friends and family.
