About the CD

Ramayana is the oldest Indian epic, encompassing 24, 000 lyrical verses, and remains the corner stone of Indian spiritual traditions. As a composite cultural and life ways ritual, Ramlila, dedicated to the life and deeds of Lord Rama, has served the purpose of devotional worship, sacrificial offering, eulogy, meditative experience and immersive communion. Ramlila of Northern India is based on the great Hindi version of the epic ‘Ramacharita Manasa’ penned by Tulsidas. The IGNCA has made this documentary for the Ministry of Culture, Government of India for presentation to the UNESCO, which has designated Ramlila as a Masterpiece of oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The film highlights the Ramlila of Ramnagar, apart from Ramlila traditions of Avadh, Braj and Madhubani.

During Ramlila celebrations the whole town of Ramanagar is transformed into a sacred landscape and a stage, where 20, 000 odd viewers move with actors to witness the sacred play, which goes on for 31 days. The ruler of Ramnagar arrives on elephant back before the performance beings. Young Rama arrives on an elder’s shoulder. The audience carries a copy of the Ramacharit Manas, and follows stanza after stanza, after the characters delivering their dialogue.

The film explores the mythological and linguistic nuances of Ramlila at Ayodhya as a blend of Braja, Madhubani region and Avadh Dialect. It presents the dynamics of dramatized orality to showcase India’s Intangible Heritage.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
