More Dussehra Traditions

17 Oct

I’ve also been told (confirmed through internet searches) that Dussehra is also a time of weapon worship. Since most of us aren’t carrying around swords and guns these days, this translates into a worship of our modern day weapons/tools like cars, tractors, computers and other electronics. Driving though Mysore today, I saw cars, trucks and rickshaws decorated like Christmas trees. Metallic tinsel, garlands of flowers and leaves decorated the grill of most vehicles. Lovely sights!
