About Vijayadashami/Dasara/Dussehra:
Vijayadashami is celebrated to commemorate the victory of Lord Rama over Demon Ravana. Vjayadashami also marks the triumph of Goddess Durga over the buffalo Demon Mahishasura. Vijayadashami is also popularly known as Dussehra or Dasara. In Nepal, Dashain is its name.

Rituals like Shami Puja, Aparajita Puja and Seema Avalanghan are followed on the day of Vijayadashami. As per Hindu division of the day, these rituals should be performed during Aparahna time.

Bengal Vijayadashami:
Vijayadashami day of West Bengal is not always the same as that of other states in India. It happens one day after the Vijayadashami in other states.

Vijayadashami is observed in most Indian states based on appropriate Muhurata and the day is chosen when there is the right combination of Tithi and Nakshatra during afternoon. Hindu religious texts suggest observing Vijayadashami only after considering appropriate Muhurata.

It seems that West Bengal has moved slowly away from the above rule as it is noted that they prefer Dasami Tithi only to observe Vijayadashami, without considering appropriate Muhurata.
