Since a very young age, our parents have lessoned us that good wins over all the bad in the world, no matter how long it takes. And a perfect example of this childhood lesson is the folklore of Ramayan. When Lord Ram had defeated Ravana, a devil-god with 10 heads, who had abducted Ram's wife, Sita, it proves that good always wins. The day is still celebrated as Dussehra and every year Ravana's statues which are stuffed with firecrackers are made and they are set ablaze at night in open fields, across the nation.

However, this year, the fun of Dussehra is not the same, all thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak. The government of India has still banned big public gatherings to avoid spreading of the Coronavirus. But everyone is celebrating the day in their own way. Bollywood couple, Genelia Deshmukh and Riteish Deshmukh also hosted a puja at their home on the auspicious occasion. And the actor shared a cute video of his kids performing the aarti.
On October 25, 2020, Riteish took to his Instagram handle and posted a video with his wife, Genelia and kids, Riaan and Rahyl. In the video, we can see the family sitting in front of their mandir and daddy, Riteish was helping his kids in aarti while they were singing Gayatri mantra. He captioned the video as "Happy Dussehra!" Check it out below:
A few weeks ago, Riteish had posted a beautiful picture with his two kids, Riaan and Rahyl. In the picture, we could see Riaan and Rahyl screaming their hearts out as they were seen enjoying the waterfall with their daddy, Riteish. Alongside the picture, Riteish had written, "Waterfalls wouldn’t sound so melodious if there were no rocks in their way."

Talking about Riteish and Genelia's love story, the duo had kept their affair hidden from the media for a long time. Earlier, in an interview with IDiva, Riteish had talked about how his relationship has evolved with his wife, Genelia. The actor had stated, "I feel it's been great. Geneila and I have grown together. She was 18 and I was 23 when we started dating. Then we married after 10 years and five years later today we have two kids. So, it is growing every day and maturity levels are changing. You are adapting to many things. The dynamics keep changing. Once you are married you are living with that person and when you have kids, the mother in you is different and father in you is different. We still like surprising each other with new things. I remember our son's first birthday and Genelia wanted to make it special and told me why don't you make a cake. That way our son will remember his first birthday. And it was my first time making a cake and it was great. That's the beauty of a relationship. You reinvent and seek happiness within. Your relationship is like treasure and the more you dig you will find something new. There will be a gem to find every day."
Riteish had also opened up on his journey of fatherhood with his two kids. He had shared, "Both of them are just amazing! One is crawling and other one is walking. One is pushing and sometimes one wants the other and then suddenly doesn't want him. My elder one thinks my younger one is a toy. So, whenever he gets up, he feels the other one should also be up. He feels he owns him!" (Don't Miss: Rani Mukerji Is Missing Family Get-Together On Navratri This Year, Will Celebrate A Low-key 'Pujo')
