Celebrating Diwali with Dastangoi performances by Ankit Chadha
Dastan Jai Ram Ji Ki-Largely based on AK Ramanujan’s essay, ‘300 Ramayanas’, this dastangoi presentation showcases the importance of the scholar's works for the understanding of India’s histories and cultures. The adaptation starts with tracing the journey of AK Ramanujan, and merges into various folk tales that display how multiple narratives circulate in the world in place of a singular one.
Going with the spirit of the story, this adaptation is an ever expanding presentation. Ankit Chadha has added folk tales from various Ram Katha traditions as and when he has heard them.
