The new moon day known as the Mahalaya Amavasya is the beginning of Dussehra. It is a special day dedicated to making an offering to express our gratitude to all the previous generations of people who have contributed to our life.
Scientists say that human beings and their ancestors have existed on this planet for 20 million years. That is a lot of time. All these hundreds of thousands of generations that lived on this planet before us have given us something or the other. The language that we speak, the way we sit, our clothes, our buildings almost everything that we know today has come to us from generations before us.
During this time, in the Indian subcontinent, new
crops would have just begun to bear yield. So their first produce is offered to
the ancestors as a mark of respect and thankfulness, by way of pinda, before the whole population
breaks into celebration in the form of other festivals like Navratri,
Vijayadashami and Diwali.
