The play explored sections of Ramayana in which Lord Ram is assailed by doubts, helplessness, and the fear of losing the war to Ravana. This incorporated three classical dance forms namely, Bharatnatyam, Chau and Kathak. It has been directed by Shri Vyomesh Shukla, a renowned poet, writer, translator from Varanasi.IGNCA presents this play in association with Roopvani. The play was presented to mark the occasion of 70 years of its completion. The story inspires people to not give up during adversities and fight against all odds till the success is achieved.
