Poem on Dasara by Srinivas Kanchibhotla

The name Dus-hara (which eventually became Dasara) can signify slaying of 10, slaying by 10, or even slaying in 10. Though the term doesn't exactly make it clear the nature of the preposition, it feels apt though that the ambiguity is by design. According to the Puranas, it is the slaying by 10, where the Sakti assumes 10 avatars to finally prevail over a variety of demons tormenting the worlds. Enter the Treta Yuga, the term becomes slaying of 10, meaning the vanquishing of the 10 headed Ravana.

Even Ravana's 10 headed legend bears some scrutiny. Is that an actual physical trait that he had, an unsymmetrical row 10 heads (5 on one side and 4 on the other, with his main one at the center), or was it just a metaphorical embelishment? Once with 10 heads worth of knowledge by mastering the 4 Vedas and the 6 Shastras, he eventually let his 3 gunas rule over his 5 senses to drive both his heart (instincts) and mind (intellect) to the ground. It might be this symbolism that is celebrated every year in Ram Leela Maidan, bringing down the 10 headed figure, a shout out to the effect of the erring ways.
