Ten Headed Ravana

Today is Dussehra. According to the Ramayana, Navratri were the nine nights when the battle between Lord Rama and the demon king Ravana ensued. On the night of Dussehra, the tenth day, Lord Rama killed Ravana, the ten headed demon king. Dussehra is celebrated as the victory of good over evil.

The kids learned about the demon king and the significance of the festival. Each of the kids was given a head shape cut out from corrugated cardboard. They learnt paper sculpture techniques like fringing, curling, scoring, pleating, etc. Using these techniques, they made a head of Ravana. All the heads were put together and each child had a chance to stand in the centre and take a picture with all ten heads.
