The central idea of celebrating the grand festival of Dussehra is to glorify the victory of good over evil, the righteousness of truth over lies and establishes dharma. It is one of the most important festivals of the Hindu community celebrated with great pomp and show. The day marks the return of Lord Rama after a long 14 years of exile. It is believed and written in the Hindu mythology Ramayana that the whole of Ajodhya enlightened diyas for welcoming Lord Rama along with brother Laxman and wife Sita. Lord Rama was sent to exile when King Dasharatha the emperor of Ajodhya decided to crown Rama as the king of Ajodhya as he was his eldest son but queen Kaikayi did conspiracy to crown his own son and made Dasharatha sent Ram to exile foe a long period of 14 years.
The festival also signifies that no matter how much educated you are or how much worship you do nothing will pay off your wrong deeds. As we all know the ten headed Ravana was a great worshiper of lord Shiva and was a genius he had the knowledge of Vedas and was considered as the king of demons. But his wrong deeds made him pay off at the cost of his life and finally believe in truth.
