VICTORY OVER EVIL!
While there are diversified celebrations happening across the country, what stands out are the cultural art forms ‘Garba’ and ‘Ramleela’ that happen to be the beautified forms of the Northern and Western India. ‘Garba’, a Gujarati folk-dance celebrated during ‘Navratra’ lasts for nine nights. The ‘Garba’ style varies from place to place. Men and women dress up in colourful, glittery and embroidered traditional outfits and shake a leg on the dance numbers that include modern and classical beats. ‘Ramleela’ is a dramatic folk re-enactment of the life of Lord Rama, ending up in the battle between Rama and Ravana, as described in the Hindu religious epic, the ‘Ramayana’. The play is staged annually, often over ten or more successive nights, during the auspicious period of ‘Navratra’. The actors dress up and put on make-up similar to that of the characters described in the epic ‘Ramayana’. The festival concludes on the day of ‘Dussehra’ when giant effigies of Ravana are lit on fire, Afternoon D&C photographers Trupti Arekar and Shyam Iyer capture these cultural art forms with elegance...
