Celebrating Ramlila

Editors posted on 4th November

You could spend another evening at home, or out with the same friends, at the same few places. Or you could explore the sites and sounds of a city that never ceases to disappoint.

The LBBD experience of Ramlila is starkly different from watching effigies burn at a distance. We took our readers to the heart of where the action is - one of the oldest Ramlilas {over 200 years old} held in our city, in Chandni Chowk.

What did we treat our readers to? Quintessential Chandni Chowk food - pao bhaji, chaat, kuliya and disco ice cream, a chance to catch all the behind the scenes scoop with kaarigars who've been creating the effigies for over 6 generations, VIP seating on the rooftop of a tent, and the telling of a tale that we've grown up listening to. There was storytelling, conversations, fireworks, disco dancing, playing carnival games, hopping on a ferris wheel and columbus, eating.. and then eating some more.
