Sonia Gandhi attends Dussehra celebrations at Subhash maidan, Delhi - 24th October 2012

On the occasion of Dussehra, Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, President Pranab Mukherjee and the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh attended the celebrations at the famous Subhash maidan. In a symbolic gesture, they took up bow and arrow in their hands and marked the beginning of the burning of effigies of Demon King Ravana, son Meghnath, and brother Kumbhakaran. Tens of thousands of people converged on this occasion to witness one of the biggest commemorations of Dussehra at Delhi's popular Ramlila Maidan and Subhash Maidan. The Congress President had earlier greeted the people on Dussehra and wished that the festival brings peace, prosperity and progress throughout the country. Towering effigies of demon king Ravana along with his son Meghnad and brother Kumbhkaran were consigned to flames among splendid fireworks as people celebrated Dussehra across the city symbolising the triumph of good over evil. Dussehra coincided with the immersion of Durga idols in the Yamuna river, marking the end of the puja festival. Dussehra was celebrated with deep fervour and enthusiasm in different parts of Delhi and in other parts of the country on Wednesday.
