Anna Hazare burns Ravana`s effigy
Mumbai: Anna Hazare today performed the
traditional burning of demon king Ravana`s effigy on the
occasion of Dusshera at his village Ralegan Siddhi in western
"It is good that by setting Ravana`s effigy on fire,
people will remember that he was an evil person. But there is
a Ravana inside everyone," he said.

villagers in a procession from the Padmavati temple in the
village in Ahmednagar district.
