RAMLEELA – Relive the Story
For young children to experience the tradition of Ramleela festivities, Grooming Babies Global Pvt. Ltd. created this dramatized puppet re-enactment of the ancient epic Ramayana.
The story depicts the 14 year long forest journey of Prince Rama Princess Sita and Brother Laxmana; their encounter with the Lanka King Ravana; defeat of Ravana in the battle between good and evil; the return of Rama to Ayodhya as the king. The show ends with a symbolic demolishing of an effigy of ten headed Raavan, made with balloons, where each head represents one of the vices within us.
The story has been mindfully crafted and the narration is brought alive through handcrafted puppets, background music, interactivity and humour. The performance format draws inspiration from immersive theatre model, bringing children into the same playing space as the performers.
Keeping contemporary challenges faced by children, the narrator through the scenes sensitively open dialogue on crucial concepts of stranger-danger, promise keeping, respect and consent.
Widely popular among Mumbai children, staging over 100 shows since 2012; it was awarded the ‘Maha Ramleela Saanman 2016’ for being the best Ramleela of Maharashtra by ABP News.
