Drummers announce the arrival of the Gods!

The festive season is here in India particularly in the North where

Diwali (Hindu equivalent of Christmas) is a month away.

Here we can see characters from Ramayana, the story of Rama, who is considered the ideal man and ruler from mythology.

The story of Rama is dramatized in plays held in prominent places in various cities. This

is called Ramlila or the Story of Rama. Here we see the characters from the play being

introduced to the general public by taking them on a victory parade through the town of

Panchkula.

The Gods here are seen riding modern chariots in the form of tractors. Crowds stood around in awe as these gods passed by their shops and homes.
