Commotion erupted as soon as the proceedings started on the third day of the monsoon session that was set to continue till July 31.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) legislators came to the assembly in blue apron which read: “Shivraj Singh Chouhan must quit.”

BSP and Congress legislators started sloganeering as the proceedings began. They also moved towards the speaker shouting slogans, triggering heated exchanges between the treasury and opposition benches.

Speaker Sita Sharan Sharma adjourned the house for 10 minutes. But as the opposition remained aggressive when the assembly reassembled, he adjourned it again at 11.30 a.m. — and finally indefinitely.

It is predisposed amongst the followers that all their wishes come true on this day.

Every year on Dussehra, the 125-year-old Dashanan temple in Shivala area of Kanpur is opened for its devotees. An idol of King Ravana is ornamented, and aarti is performed. Devotees perform religious rituals and light lamps to celebrate the festival. The temple remains closed following the burning of Ravana’s statue.

Dashanan Temple was constructed in 1890 by king Guru Prasad Shukl. The rationale behind the construction of Dashanan temple was Ravana’s adherence towards Lord Shiva.

King Ravana is worshipped at many places in India, for example: In Andhra Pradesh’s Kakinada, a huge shivalinga established by Ravana is revered along with the demon-king. Vidisha, a village in Madhya Pradesh is dedicated to King Ravana. In this village, the first wedding card invitation is sent to Ravana before the commencement of any celebration. Neither the devotees burn dummies of King Ravana, nor do they celebrate Dussehra.
