However, Ravan kidnaps Sita. Raam requested Ravan to release her, but Ravan refused; the situation escalating and lead to the war. After performing severe penance for ten thousand years, Ravan receives a boon from the creator-god Brahma: he could henceforth not be killed by gods, demons, or spirits. He is portrayed as a powerful demon king who disturbs the penances of rishis. Lord Vishnu incarnates as the human Rama to defeat and kill him, thus circumventing the boon given by Lord Brahma. A deadly and fierce battle takes place between Raam and Ravan in which Raam kills Ravan and ends the evil rule. Ravan has ten heads. The killing of the one who has ten heads is called Dusshera. Finally, Dharma was installing on the Earth because of Raam’s victory over Ravan. Thus this festival is celebrating reminding the victories of Good over Evil.
