Centuries old Ramlila is going to don a new look this season. Come September 27 and the stage theatre based on Hindu mythology is all set to hit the web platform with live webcast.
The audio of the grand show will also be available on mobile phones through podcasts.
What’s more? This year, the organisers are also looking at making the event more larger- than-life by coming up with new themes and bigger stages. One Ramlila committee in Delhi is planning to set up Birmingham palace in the backdrop.
“The times have changed and in order to attract young audience, we have to innovate. We’ll be going live this year on our website. We have a large Indian diaspora living in the UK, the US, Canada and other European countries. We have to cater them as well as they are more into their culture,” said Rahul Sharma of Shri Dharmik Lila committee which organises the show at the Red Fort ground.
Ramlila committees across the Capital are also getting their security act right by placing CCTV cameras at the venue. “We’ll make sure that no untoward incident happens. Though the security arrangement won’t hamper the festivities,” said Jeewan Sharma of Shri Ram Lila committee, IP extension.
