In a vibrant celebration of cultural heritage, Delhiites find themselves drenched in the spiritual aura of the ongoing India International Ramayana Mela 2024. The seventh edition of this fest is unfolding against the picturesque backdrop of Purana Qila (Old Fort), where the city’s residents enthusiastically participate in a myriad of activities that celebrate the essence of Ramayana.

As visitors explore the Mela, the harmonious chanting of “Ram naam” reverberates through the air, creating an atmosphere resonant with devotion. Artists from various age groups in the city have converged to paint a colossal 30 feet long canvas, depicting scenes from the Ramayana. Karan Kushwaha, a fine arts student from Jamia Millia Islamia, shares insights into this collaborative artistic endeavor.

The festival offers free workshops on diverse art forms like Madhubani, Bhil, Gond, and Warli, attracting many eager participants. Additionally, attendees are treated to yoga sessions and captivating puppet and magic shows. Anita Sethi, a fashion design student from Delhi, expresses her excitement about participating in the fest, especially as it coincides with the establishment of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

Remi Poddar, an artist from Noida, uses his canvas to depict Surasa, the female demon in the Ramayana, aiming to convey a powerful message about overcoming challenges with humility, akin to Hanuman’s journey. “I feel it’s my good fortune to portray Ram on stage around this time when the whole world is experiencing the positive vibes of the Ram Temple construction in India,” says I Sajith, a Bharatnatyam dancer from Sri Lanka.

The fest also incorporates free yoga sessions, with instructor Meenakshi highlighting the connection between yoga and the ancient era portrayed in the Ramayana. The practice of yoga, as viewed during that yuga, serves as a medium to inhale positive energies and exhale negative energies, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil.

The India International Ramayana Mela becomes a unique amalgamation of cultural celebration and spiritual reflection, creating an immersive experience for all participants. As Delhiites engage in diverse activities that resonate with the essence of the Ramayana, the fest serves as a testament to the enduring cultural significance of this epic tale
