In Chandigarh, the Ramlila is staged at more than 46 different venues, with performances adhering to different rituals and traditions. The staging is a collaborative effort, and backstage helpers are just as important as the ones performing onstage. Whether it’s handling light and sound, applying make-up, providing a soundtrack, prompting dialogues or cooking food for the crew, it is a team effort. The 10-day-long extravaganza also opens up extra employment opportunities for vendors, who sell different items to spectators, including bows and arrows, Hanuman gadas, swords and masks.
