Dussehra Celebrations at the Snubnose’s School

by

Dussehra is one of the most colorful festivals in India – celebrating the victory of good over evil through Lord Ram’s defeat of Raavan.

At the snubnose’s school, Dussehra was celebrated by throwing a Ramlila performance (a kind of street drama depicting stories from the life of Lord Ram), a dandiya dance (which the snubnose participated in), and a procession.

Here are some photos:

  • Shriram play by Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra. A celebration of Ramleela before Dussehra which is on 21st October.
    Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra enters its 51st year of the presentation of the story of ‘RAM. At the time when ‘RAM’ was first performed in 1957, there were practically no dancers in Delhi and had to be specially brought from Kolkatta and Kerala. Today it is a matter of pride that perhaps almost every school in Delhi – of which there are hundreds – have dance teachers who have performed in this production.
