A Muslim artisan and his family in Jaipur, Rajasthan prepare Ravana effigies for Dussehra festival

Jaipur:  It stands true of India yet there lies unity in our diversity. As people across the country are celebrating Durga Puja festival, other religious communities besides Hindus are also contributing their share.

A Muslim artisan and his family in Jaipur, Rajasthan prepared Ravana effigies for Dussehra festival on Tuesday.

The family has been in the business of making effigies of the demon king since many years.

“We have been making such effigies for years now. It took us one and a half month to complete it this time,” said the artisan.

 “We stay in the society together. We all are the same no matter one is Hindu or Muslim,” the artisan added further.

Effigies of demon king Ravana will be burnt on the day of Dussehra, marking the victory of good over evil. The festival is also known as Vijaya Dashami, Dasara or Dashain.
