2. Ramleela - Children's Puppet Show
It is a prime practice to stage Ramleela during Dusherra in India. For young children to experience and relive this Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage, as proclaimed by UNESCO, we have produced dramatized children Ramleela with puppet characters. This 45 min puppet drama trails the journey of Prince Ram, Princess Sita and Brother Laxman from Ayodhya to Lanka, after being banished by their queen mother. It highlights their encounter with Lanka King Ravan and the resultant battle that lasted for 10 days leading to the triumph of Prince Ram – a day marked by the celebration of Dussehra. Since busting an idol of Ravan on this occasion has been the age old tradition, we have also created a balloon Ravan to give children the same feel and experience. The show is hosted by puppeteer and academician Sahba Bhandula along with puppeteer Dr. Pooja Jain. Our Ramleela is most enjoyed by children in the ages of 2-6 years.
