New Delhi: The day when Lord Rama killed Ravana by beheading each of his ten heads symbolically referring to the vices, is celebrated across the globe as Dussehra. The tenth day after Navratri is also known as Vijayadashami or Dussehra.

In Eastern India, on Vijayadashami Maa Durga's idols are immersed (Visarjan) and a farewell is bid to the goddess with the hope of her coming back again next year. Goddess Durga killed demon Mahishasur and again the victory of good over evil is celebrated on this day.

While in North India, Dussehra too holds the similar significance only with the reference being to Ravana getting killed by Lord Rama. So, Bollywood took to Twitter and extended their best wishes on Twitter:

Shubho Bijoya to all #durgadurga
