Dehradun: Amid COVID Crisis, 'Ravan Dahan' Cancelled In Dussehra Fairs
The Bannu community, organiser of the Dussehra fair in Dehradun, has decided to cancel the 'Ravan Dahan' this year. The decision was taken citing COVID-19 concerns and the demise of the Bannu community's founder LD Virmani. President of the Bannu Community Harish Virmani stated, "We are planning to organize some symbolic celebrations so that the tradition continues." However, the community is planning to organise some small events to celebrate Dussehra.
