The Rāmalīlā of northern India is based on the great Hindi version of the epic Rāmacaritamānasa of Tulsīdās. IGNCA made this documentary for the Ministry of Culture, Government of India for presentation to the UNESCO, which has designated Rāmalīlā as a masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The film features the Rāmalīlā of Ramnagar, apart from the traditions of Awadh, Braj and Madhubani. During Rāmalīlā celebrations the whole town of Ramnagar is transformed into a sacred landscape and a stage, where 20,000 odd viewers move with actors to witness the sacred play, which goes on for 31days.

The film explores the mythological and linguistic nuances of Rāmalīlā at Ayodhya as a blend of Braj, Madhubani region and Avadh dialects.

Bidesia is known for its intensity of presentation, simplicity of language and unsophisticated style. It is not a dance form, but a kind of Tamāśā, which reflects the culture of the region. It has rich variety and emotional content. The ingredients of the play include a speech (saṁvāda), different forms of poetry like pad, short poem, vachun, gīta (song), ghazal and also a dance. It is enacted at night on a raised mound, which serves as a stage, and locally available lights are used. The costumes and the material, used for the make-up, are local. Bhikhārī Ṭhākur, the doyen of Bhojpuri theatre - specially the form known as Bidesia, did tremendous work to popularize his theatre and mesmerize the audience

Screening of Film by Media Centre:     NAGAMANDALA- THE NAGA WORSHIP

Naga or snake worship is a hoary Indian tradition. Naga is worshiped to ward-off ‘Nagadosha’ or the curse of the snakes and to ensure fertility and prosperity. For thousands of years devout have been coming to the land of Sage Parasurama on the bank of Kumaradhara River, in pilgrimage to the Kukke Sri Subramania temple in Karnaktaka, which is renowned for naga worship. The film highlights the coexistence of traditional folk and classical belief system in temple rituals, agrarian theories and practices and, Naga as in the six realms in Buddhist tradition. It showcases Udupi, the temple town, and cruises through the typical ant hill style villages, where Naga are worshipped alongside pitchers, decorated with serpents coiling upward. It also highlights the naga Bana where hundreds of Naga icons are kept at the base of trees as part of a functional agrarian ritual. It celebrates the Nagamandala in which 64 types of Naga ancestors are appeased with panda, placed on a rangoli, squared upon a yantra, to ward off evil. The snake coiled in polychromatic rangoli, daylong rituals and night long dance of male and female naga depict fertility and prosperity.
