An effigy is being made for tutu in Jathiyadevi, an effigy is being prepared in Baluganj.
Every year there is enthusiasm in the townspeople about Ramlila and Dussehra. People come from far and wide to see Dussehra. The most craze in this was Jakhu Dahsere, where the biggest Ravana was burnt. Every year about 80 feet of Ravana was prepared here. Along with Ravana, the effigies of Kumbhakaran and Meghnad were also burnt. Every year the Chief Minister was the chief guest in this. The program of burning Ravana was done with his hands. But this time the Dussehra festival will be celebrated in the Jakhu temple of the capital Shimla.
But neither the chief guest will come here nor will the 80 feet Ravana burn. Ravana combustion will also be done at many other places including Jakhu. There will be simple programs under the Carena Protocol. Summerhill and Nabha committee have also canceled the Dussehra program due to Corona. For the past two years, due to Corona, the program of Dussehra festival remains fuzzy.
Ceremony will be performed in Jakhu: Every year the biggest Ravana Dahan of the city took place on Vijayadashami at Jakhu Temple and hundreds of people reached the temple to watch the program. Ravan of about 80 feet was burnt here. The effigies of Kumbhakarna and Meghnad also lived more than 50 feet. But this time only Ravana of about 30 to 35 feet is being prepared in Jakhu temple. This time, keeping the tradition of effigy burning, only rituals will be paid. No one is allowed to enter it. Ravan Dahan program will be held here at around 6 pm.
Permission will have to be taken from DC today for Ravana Dahan
This time it has also been made necessary to take permission from DC for burning the effigy of Ravana on Hashare. DC had already issued orders regarding this. However, so far no committee has taken permission as these orders were issued on Monday. Wednesday was a holiday. In such a situation, all the committees will take permission today. This decision was taken to prevent untoward incidents and to control the incidents of arson.
Because the fire department employees will also be deployed at the places where Ravana combustion will take place and the rules of Kovid will also have to be followed. Especially Jakhu, Sankatmochan reach a lot of people in temples and other areas. Security has been made necessary here. According to the order, burning of Ravana effigy should be done in open fields apart from crowded areas.
