I hope you and your family are in good health. I also hope you had a happy time during the Dussehra holidays. This Dussehra, me, my family, and my uncle’s family went to Kerala for a short vacation. In Kerala, Dusshera is celebrated as Vijayadashami or Vidhyaarambham. This day is considered an auspicious day to start learning. On this day, children who have crossed 4 years of age will be made to scribble their first letters on a plate of raw rice using their index finger. This is a ritual that happens in most of the temples in Kerala. We also had a journey in a houseboat. We saw the beautiful backwaters here and also tasted some of the special Kerala dishes, like fish curry. What I learned from this trip is about the rich culture of our country. Dasara is celebrated all over India in different ways, and we should respect all cultures and our diversity.
Bye and take care
