Vijay Dasami In Mysore

Elaborately caparisoned pachyderms accompanied trot down the brightly lit streets in perfect symphony with the rhythmic music. The Mysore palace is lit with a thousand shimmering lamps as if to welcome the victorious Lord Rama. Brilliantly decorated tableaux and processions depicting various scenes from Ramayana forms the main attraction of this festival. People gather on the streets to witness this grand procession and to be a part of the Ramayana Era.

On the tenth day (Vijayadashami day) mammoth images of Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghnath complete with swirling moustaches and ten heads are placed in sprawling grounds. These colorful effigies are filled with explosives and dry straw. Actors dressed as Lord Rama and Lakshmana shoot arrows of fire at these colossal effigies. The air reverberates with the deafening blast of crackers and the gigantic effigies disintegrate into shreds and pieces. The spectators break into loud cries of merriment and triumph.
