60 Feet Ravana Effigy to be Burnt at Salt Lake Central Park on Dussehra



A 60-feet-tall Ravana effigy is to be burnt on Dussehra by Salt Lake Sanskritik Sansad in Central Park (Salt Lake), Kolkata.

Keeping up with its tradition of burning the tallest effigy in the tricity during Dussehra, the Salt Lake Sanskritik Sansad Committee is all set to burn a 60-feet tall Ravana effigy at the Central Park (Salt Lake), Kolkata on 30th September, 2017. Last year, an 50-feet tall effigy of Ravana was burnt by the committee. The main objective of this event is to provide a vibrant interface between the citizens and the rich culture & tradition of West Bengal.

Besides burning of the 60-feet-tall effigy of Ravana, they will be also organising a separate fire show during the event. They have hired artistes from various states to perform during the function. The fireworks would continue for about 45 minutes. Apart from this, a series of rituals will be performed before the burning of the effigy around 7 pm and they are expecting a turnout of over 25,000 people this year.
