Mysore Dasara!

People from all over the World are Welcome to my beautiful Mysore
To participate in the Ten-Day Celebration, Dasara in Mysore
Dasara is the celebration of Victory of Good over evil
Mother Goddess Sri Chamundeshwari is the Vanquisher of all evil

Legend has it that long ago the Buffalo demon Mahishasura haunted Mysore
He could shape-shift into different forms and torture people of Mysore
He had the boon " not to be killed by man or animal ", didn't mention woman
Goddess mounted on a huge Lion and beheaded him, showed the power of woman

The battle took place for ten days and he was killed on the tenth day
Goddess was victorious, Vijayadashmi marks the celebration of that day
The huge, cunning and fierce demon and his army were swept away
Goddess was here to protect Us and restore happiness, What else to say?

Long ago the Demon Mahishasura was a real terror
Goddess slayed the demon and saved people from horror
Legend has it that all Divine forms united to form her One form
Our land is blessed ever since with bliss, prosperity and reform

People wait hours to witness the Jambu Savari, the Elephant Procession
Sandalwood trees, Abundant Flora and Fauna are a great possession
Art, Handicrafts, Flowers, Food, Music, Literature, Cars new and Vintage
We Mysoreans are proud of Our rich culture, simplicity and heritage

Mysore Chamundi Hills is the Abode of the Goddess Sri Chamundeshwari
The Most Powerful, Ruling Deity of Karnataka, Sri Chamundeshwari
Mysore is the city with humility, Grace, Peace and Royal Kingdom
Mysore has always been enchanting with Beauty, Culture and Wisdom.
