Learning The Art of Ravan-Making At Shafa This Dussehra

It's highly unusual for most of us to ever even think of achieving this unimaginable feat. Making our own Ravan? Had someone told anyone of us that this can be achieved by us we would probably be laughing all the way back home. But this time, our home is where challenges are welcomed, not walked away from. This is how we live life today, away from the darkness and into the light of knowledge, personality development , and unlimited celebrations.
