Poem on Vijaya Dasami by Srinivas Kanchibhotla

Nava raatri is probably the most practical one, in terms of performing of one's karma, of all the festivals in Hindu mythology. The day Vijaya Dasami is the culmination/fruition of all the efforts and the hard work that was put into achieving the end goal. Take Ramayanam, for example. Lord Rama, a Vishnu incarnate, could have killed Ravana in an instant, if he took the divine route. Instead he endured the arduous journey walking in the shoes of an every day man, before reaching his end goal of slaying the demon. Similarly Mahabharatam, where Arjuna, inspite of being an eunuch, does not back out taking out the sea of Kourava's army in the gOgrahaNam episode. Even here, vijaya daSami marks the day of the end result. The "ayudha pooja" performed during these days by the farmers, paying respects to the tools of their trade, stresses the importance of duty and performance.
