If you wish to watch Ravan Dahan this year in Delhi, you have numerous options. Since the Covid-19 situation is in check, the festivals are being celebrated once again. On the evening of Dussehra, the effigies of Ravana, his son Meghnad and brother Kumbhakarna are set to fire to demonstrate the victory of good over evil. There are a number of popular places where you can enjoy Ravan Dahan in North Delhi, West Delhi, South Delhi, East Delhi or Dwarka.
1. Red Fort Ground
Lav Kush Ramlila Committee is known to be the oldest committee in Delhi. It was established in 1979. Since then, the committee has organised Ramlila events and Ravan Dahan at Red Fort, Delhi. On the day of Vijay Dashmi, the effigy of demon king Ravan is burnt to symbolise good over evil.
2. Ramlila Ground, Sadar Bazaar, Delhi Cantt
It is located in the center of Sadar Bazaar, near Geeta Ashram Mandir and behind Gurudwara Sahib. Every year, DCRWA organises Ramlila in the Delhi cantonment. Last year, due to the Covid-19 outbreak, they had to postpone their event looking at the circumstances. Fortunately, in 2021, you can enjoy the Ramleela and other events that happen here. This place is always a little overcrowded; the hustle and bustle here cause traffic jams, enabling traffic to move.
3. Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium
Dussehra at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium is viewed as the one of most incredible events in South Delhi. On Vijay Dashmi, when the sun begins going down, the effigy of Ravan goes up in blazing flares, leaving behind a great blast of fireworks for the cheering onlookers. Massive crowd gathers here; people travel long hours to Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium to enjoy the Ravan Dahan.
4. Dwarka Sector 21, Pacific Mall
This year, you will be amazed to see the new digitalised concept for Ravan Dhavan. The All Dwarka Residents Federation (ADRF) has come with an idea of pollution-free Dussehra. There will be a big screen installed for the viewers to see Ravan Dahan. ADRF's sole motive is to go eco-friendly and pollution-free Dussehra this year and for the upcoming years ahead.
