Dussehra (Vijayadashami) Celebrations, Urban Estate, Phase-II, Jalandhar City
The banner atop the main entrance
The crowded streets...
The Army marches
People touching the feet of actors playing the role of Lord Rama and Others...Such is the faith...
The aeromodel in action
The colored bits of paper they showered from above on the parade and the public
People hog all of the nearby buildings for a better view
Hot air ballons, signifying the beheaded heads of Lord Ravana
Regular parade by different actors encompassing the entire area
Crackers being continually burned to keep the public interested while the VIPs hog the stage
Unfortunately, a stampede followed the burning of first effigy. Thankfully no one was hurt
People charging towards the "remains" or "ashthiyan", since they are considered auspicious for the household
