‘Vijaya Dashami’ also known as ‘Dussehra’ is a major Hindu festival celebrated at the end of Navratri every year. Vijayadashami is observed for different reasons and celebrated differently in various parts of the Indian subcontinent.
In India, both Goddess Durga and Lord Rama are Worshipped for their victory over evil. Vijayadashami celebrations include processions to a river or ocean front that carry clay statues of Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ganesha and Kartikeya, accompanied by music and chants, after which the idols and sculptures are immersed into the water for dissolution and a graceful goodbye.
And did you know that its not just the ‘Gaurvi Gujaratis’ who are famous for and accustomed to Fafda & Jalebi?
There is a Custom of eating Fafda’s & Jalebi on Dussehra which has an interesting mythological importance. It was believed that Lord Rama loved Jalebis (called ‘Shashkouli’ then) and since Dussehra is celebrated in respect to Lord Ram’s win over the evil Ravana – people devour these delectable twirls of fried, sugary goodness on this day. Scriptures suggest that every fast can be broken with a dish made from gram flour, hence, the Navratri fast is ended with a savoury fafda note.
After the weariness of dancing for nine days, jalebis help reduce the fatigue.
So go ahead and indulge and pamper your taste buds but remember, anything in excess is bad!
