Let the modern day demons be killed this Dussehra

Dussehra commemorates victory of goodness over evil. I am not sure if in our lifetimes another avatar of Lord Vishnu will take birth in human form to slay modern day Ravana, but let’s resolve to kill the evils that are at least in our control:

(1) Let’s conserve nature, more so water, and avoid wastage in all forms

(2) Let’s keep our cities, towns, villages, neighbourhoods clean.

(3) Let’s make India free of outdoor defecation and provide access to clean toilets to all

(4) Let’s get over the political stereotypes of religion, cast and gender and treat everyone as equal and the Indianness as the common faith

The above are simple dos that are not preachy in nature, being already followed by the author in letter and spirit. If we kill the above Ravanas namely pollution, shortage, dirtiness, communalism and casteism, several other demons will automatically commit suicide.

This Dussehra apart from burning the effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghnaad, let’s also bury the hatchet of aforesaid evils.

Happy Dussehra!
