The end of Navratri, or the tenth day, marks Dusshera. Dusshera is celebrated as the day Lord Rama defeated the demon, King Ravan, in Lanka, which is described in detail in the holy Hindu epic, Ramayana.

The tenth day is celebrated around the globe by setting extremely large “Ravanas” on fire, representing the conquering of good over evil. According to the epic, following this victory Lord Rama, Sita, Lakshman as well as Lord Hanuman travelled back to their kingdom of Ayodhya.

Navratri is celebrated with lots of fun and frolic, but this festive season should be celebrated on a low key manner due to COVID-19 outbreak. It is suggested to organize health blood donation camps, keeping up with the efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
