Irrespective of cultural and racial differences, Rama’s story has been accepted by many cultures in the Northeast, which rewrote the story adapting it to their particular social and cultural milieu. In the Brahmaputra valley, Ramakatha appeared in various forms as presented by Shankardev and the Madhav Kondoli of medival Kamrupa Besides narrations and discourses on the Ramayana, it has also been translated into kirtans, popularly known as pala gaan. These kirtaniyas are found in Vishnupriya Manipuri communities of Barak Valley and Tripura. In the villages of Tripura, the oral tradition of the Ramayana is a simple unsophisticated form of folk poetry, popularly known as Rama Panchali, which is sung and narrated.
