Dussehra Celebrations at the Snubnose’s School


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 โ€˜RAM. At the time when โ€˜RAMโ€™ 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 โ€“ of which there are hundreds โ€“ have dance teachers who have performed in this production.
