Dissehra is a festival of nine days with the celebrations happening on the 10th day. The nine days before Dussehra are called Navratri and Dussehra is also called Vijay Dashmi. On the first navratra, barley in planted. In our house we plant it in 5 different pots and till the seeds sprout, they are covered with large leaves.
I have compiled more inages related to Dussehra and Diwali in an image gallery. Do have a look
