• TV Actors talks about Dussehra!

    Ssharad Malhotra, Arjun Bijlani, Rashami Desai and Vivian Dsena talk about Dussehra!

    Today, it is Dussehra or Vijayadashami. It is the day when Lord Rama triumphed over Ravana and signified the victory of good. Celebrations are varied across India. On this occasion a number of TV stars revive their memories…

    Ssharaad Malhotraa: Dussehra means festivities and celebrations, the weather is also pleasant. The best memory is when I played Ram in school and I got standing applause for my performance, I feel nostalgic when I think about it. Those were the days!

     Dussehra is when people dress up in new clothes. I have been a theater actor so Ramleela has always intrigued me as an actor. Dusshera is not just a festival it reflects the philosophy of life.

    Vivian Dsena: Ujjain is my hometown and while growing up I have seen Dussehra celebrations with crackers and Ramleela. I used to spend quality time with friends.

    Ravi Dubey: I am from Delhi Dusshera is quite big, people dress up in new clothes and celebrate with dhoom-dhadaka. In colony we used to make ravan with paper and other old stuffs and burning it was delightful feeling of victory.

    Rashami Desai: I love to see Ravan Dahan. I love I have great childhood memories of going for Ram leela and Ravan Dahan. I feel good in the festive fervour. Dussehra gives a very feel good feeling. I like to see people dressed everywhere and family gatherings are a delight too.

    Vahbiz Dorabjee: Dussehra symbolizes the conquest of good over evil. It’s so good to have family together on this auspicious day. Any Dussehra celebration is incomplete without a visit to a Mela. You not only find desi versions of fun rides like the Ferris Wheel and the Merry-Go-Round but loads of street food and mithai in every nook and corner of the ground.

    Arjun Bijlani: Dussehra for everyone is victory of good over evil. I remember my childhood days playing with ‘dhanush baan’ and ‘gada’ toys and Ravan masks. Kids wear these and consider themselves no less than the Ramayan characters, Ram, Ravan and Hanuman.
