By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Oct 4 - The annual Vijayadashami Mahotsav celebrated by the Asom Vijayadashami Mahotsava Samity, will be held on October 11 at the Nehru Stadium here from 4 pm. As in previous years, the organisers have made arrangements for a slew of programmes to promote spirituality and the Vaishnavite tradition of the State.

According to chairman of the Samity Ramniranjan Goenka, it is important to preserve and promote the Vaishnavite tradition of the State that had paved the way for a cohesive society. �At this point when transitions are sweeping across the State, we all have a responsibility to inculcate spiritualism in our youth. We feel that the ideals of Srimanta Sankaradeva need to be promoted at the national level. With an aim towards highlighting the essence of the rich Vaishnavite culture, we have included Gayan Bayan as well in our forthcoming event,� said Goenka, adding that the tradition of Gayan Bayan has a powerful impact on the ambience.

Apart from Gayan Bayan, the programme will feature Ramleela and Ramvijay Bhaona, which will be performed by artistes from the State and outside, and Garba dance.

This year the effigy of Ravana will be around 82 feet high.

The effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghnad are nearing completion under the guidance of Safiqul Islam. Islam has been associated with the programme since 2012 and according to the organisers, he is devoted to his work.

�We are encouraged by the response we are getting from the citizens. This year we are expecting over twenty-five thousand spectators,� said the organisers.
