At that time, when this demon made it difficult for humans and all Gods to live harmoniously, Goddess Durga took avatar to stop brutal killings and save humankind from his cruel acts.

While, during Sharad Navratri, demon called Ravana was killed by Lord Ram. Several years ago, when Ram killed this Demon to save his wife, Goddess Sita, this festive was renowned as victory of good over bad. That was the end of torture by demon and beginning of something auspicious.
