Dasara Special: 10 Traditional Outfits You Can Wear Inspired By Your Favourite Actresses
The locals of Karnataka are known for preserving their history, traditions and culture. Festivals have a special place in the hearts of Kannadigas and they celebrate each of them with a lot of fervour. However, the festival of Dasara, also known as Mysuru Dasara, Navratri or Vijayadashami is considered the biggest occasion of them all!
For 10 days starting from September 29 to October 8 this year, Kannadigas will observe the festival of Dasara. For those of you who don’t know, it is celebrated to commemorate the time when Goddess Parvathi came down to earth in the form of a woman named Chamundeshwari Devi and slaughtered a demon king named Mahishasur, who wreaked havoc in the area.
After slaying him on the hill, the Goddess decided to spend her final days atop it (now known as Chamundi Hill). In simple words, Dasara is a festival to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. During this 10-day grand event, one of the most prominent customs is that people purchase new clothes for each member of their family. According to various legends, it is said that, if you wear a new dress during this time, in the coming year you will get 10 more outfits.
