Twenty year-old Ramlila which used to take place at Prahladxgadi village before it shifted to its current venue has circus and several tableaux among its high points. “Every important episode has a jhanki accompanying it. It just makes it more appealing. Also things like maut ka kuan in the circus section add to the fun.”

Staged in Indirapuram, Narendra Sharma, Secretary of the Committee, says, the beautiful Pushpak in which Ravan abducts Sita, Ram Baraat are some of its USPs. “Ram’s wedding procession is huge with 10-12 floats. Another achievement of ours is that we have people from different religions on board and they are all very active members. What can be a better example of a syncretism which is the hallmark of our culture,” he says.
