{ F.A.S.H.I.O.N} Good over EVIL

Hello lovelies!

Here is wishing you all a Happy Dussehra. This post was scheduled for tomorrow but surprisingly the festival shifted and got me working early morning. This festival has always resonated with me since childhood because it celebrated - The VICTORY of GOOD over EVIL.
As a child i always felt strongly that all evil must die and our world be a heaven of good!

This year, the festival comes at a time when #MeToo- a movement against sexual abuse is at its peak in India.
The idea is to make the predators known so that no more innocent women are subjected to their condemnable acts. We live in a world of hypocrisy- but when the good unite - there will always be victory. Luckily a lot of good news is floating as a consequence of some confessions and the defaulters are stepping down. And all this around Dussehra - I am glad.

I still remember as a kid, me and my kid brother erected a Raavan once-  the most frail looking history has ever seen- He even looked cute ( Evil need not look ugly) because his face was made by an inverted clay pot , eyes painted beautifully with felt pens . I realised i couldn't even draw EVIL. But evil is inside, its not what the eyes can see. Exactly why you can never tell a predator by his looks until you've seen his mind! So i decided to make the Raavan evil from inside. His paper body was filled with explosive crackers and a lot of paper trash. The next task of burning the Raavan was the most difficult - who knew destroying evil was difficult ! I thought fire would burn the evil crackers inside - but i forgot his head made of  clay pot was rather rigid just like the ideologies people carry. We took a stick and smashed it till it was reduced to sand. At the end of it we realised it was quite a task to celebrate Dusshera in our backyard - this was our first and last. But we knew Good will always win- even if it takes a lot of efforts - one has to keep fighting !
And don't forget to eat a laddoo after you've got rid of evil - sweet celebrations!
