New Delhi: Towering effigies of 10-headed demon king Ravana, his son Meghnad and brother Kumbhakaran crackled in fiery splendour marking the triumph of good over evil as gusto and fervour marked Dussehra festivities across the country today.
Crowds burst into cheers as the stuffed effigies, dotting grounds and open spaces, went up in flames at sundown. With police keeping a hawk-eye vigil, the festivities passed off peacefully in different parts of the country. In Delhi, President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Vice-President Hamid Ansari, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and Union minister Harshvardhan Singh were among the dignitaries who saw the evil going up in smoke at Subhash maidan.
