Dusherra the flagship event of the Scottish Indian Arts Forum is being held on 17th October 2021 on top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh. Dusherra, one of the largest festivals in India, commemorates a 10 day war between the gods and demons thousands of years ago. It is celebrated with gusto by communities with music, dance, food and a symbolic burning of the Effigies of the demons to celebrate the victory of good over evil.
This year’s cultural programme features a mixture of Scottish and Indian music and dance.
Food stalls provided by Indian by Nature, Glasgow and Kalpana restaurant based out of Edinburgh.
The event culminates in the burning of effigies and the fireworks.
