The origin of the name of Dussehra roots back to sanskrit Dash Hara wherein, the literal english translation is “the defeat of the Sun.” Hadn’t the Ravana been defeated, the sun would not have risen again
Navratri means ‘nine nights’ and for these nine nights Goddess Durga is worshipped in all of her forms.This is a very significant festival for Hindus and is celebrated twice a year.

Like any Hindu festival, there are many legends behind the festival and why it is celebrated.
