Dussehra Festival according to Hindu Mythology celebrates the victory of Lord Rama over Ravana by burning effigies of Ravana across India. Dussehra . The Vijaya Dashami also known as Dasara, Dushahara, Navaratri, Durgotdsav is one of the very important & fascinating festivals celebrated by Hindus all over India.
One of the big festivals celebrated in most parts of India is Dussehra. The festival is celebrated with zest and festivities as it also marks the beginning of the winter season after the long, unbearable, hot summer. Dussehra marks the victory of Ram over the demon king Ravana, and the rescue of his wife Sita. In north India, gigantic effigies of the ten-headed Ravana and his brothers are set aflame amidst bursting of crackers. Fairs are usually held on this occasion with lots to eat, buy and enjoy.
Dussehra means the Tenth Day, being the 10th day of the bright half of Ashvin. This day is also known as Vijayadashmi, or the Victory Tenth, because of the victory of Ram over Ravana.
As Dussehra is preceded by the Navratri or the nine days of the worship of Goddess Durga, some rituals related to the Goddess are also carried out that day. The rituals of Durga Puja involve the usual puja of goddess Durga along with Lord Ram. On this day in Satyug, Ram (the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu), killed the great demon and king of Lanka, Ravan, who had abducted Ram's wife Sita. Ram, along, with his brother Lakshman, follower Hanuman, and an army of monkeys fought a great battle for ten days to rescue his wife Sita.
According to another story, Kautsa, the young son of Devdatt, a Brahmin, was living in the city of Paithan. After studying under the guidance of Rishi Varatantu, he insisted on his guru accepting a present, or gurudakshina. Initially the guru refused but later asked for 140 million gold coins, one hundred million for each of the subjects taught. The obedient student went to the King Raghu to ask for the money, as the king was renowned for his generosity. Within three days the king made the God of Wealth Kuber make a rain of gold coins near the shanu and apati trees. After giving the promised amount to the guru, Kautsa distributed the rest of the coins among the needy on the day of Dussehra. Even today, in Ayodhya, the capital of King Raghu, people loot the leaves of the apati trees and present to each other as sone or gold.
Sari (T105), 19th c.
50 x 142 inches
Gift of Mrs. Henrietta Brewer
Hand-woven, raw silk sari with a vibrant maroon body, red borders, and accents in green and violet. Rich zari work throughout, especially in the wide, solid brocade pallu, or end pieces, which are interlock-patterned with geometric flowers. Above the pallu, Mughal inspired motifs such as floral vines and butahs, or paisleys. Thick zari borders in a fine geometric pattern. Body worked in zari coin pattern, and interspersed with large roundels.
The sari is a typical Paithani sari, named after the town of Paithan in Maharashtra where this style emerged. Paithani saris are among the most prized produced in Maharashtra, or indeed, all of India. Perennially, the most defining feature of these saris is their heavy brocade pallu. Though Paithani saris of the last two hundred years tend to include Mughal motifs, the Paithani tradition precedes the Mughal Empire, and is documented to be at least two thousand years old.
Made from sumptuous quantities of gold and silk, and requiring months of painstaking labor, these saris were customarily worn by the elite. They made up a traditional part of a Maharathi woman’s trousseau, and were passed down as heirlooms. In the years following independence, the Paithani declined drastically as weavers struggled to secure the patronage needed to buy silk and gold zari thread. While today’s market is flooded with cheap reproductions, recent decades have seen a renewed interest in preserving the masterful handiwork of true Paithanis. Indeed, the Indian government is now sponsoring several handicraft initiatives to keep this craft from disappearing.
