Dusherra 2018 on Sunday 21st October 2018

Dussehra the flagship event of the Scottish Indian Arts Forum is being held on top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh. Dussehra, one of the largest festivals in India, commemorates a 10 day war between the gods and demons thousands of years ago. It is celebrated with gusto by communities with music, dance, food and a symbolic burning of the Effigies of the demons to celebrate the victory of good over evil.

This year’s cultural programme features a mixture of Scottish and Indian music and dance.

Food stalls provided by Kamasutra and Mumbai Street Food based out of Edinburgh.

The event culminates in the burning of effigies and the fireworks.
