Believe it or not! Residents of a non-descript village in Maharashtra celebrate Dussehra in a different way as they perform 'Aarti' of the demon king Ravan on the festival when his effigies are burnt in other parts of the country. Many residents of Sangola village in Akola district believe they are employed and able to sustain their livelihood because of Ravan's blessings and the peace and happiness in their village is because of the demon king. The villagers believe in Lord Ram, but they also have faith in Ravan and do not burn his effigies, local resident Bhivaji Dhakre said. (Image PTI)
