“Ram, maine maut par fateh pa lee hai. Poori qayanaat me mere se bada aur takatvar insaan koi nahi hai. Tu jaa apna kaam kar.” RavanThe industrial town of Faridabad, Haryana, has kept an age-old tradition alive. The Ram Leela that is organised, tells the story of Ram in Urdu. From Ram to Ravan to Hanuman to Sita – all the characters deliver their dialogues in Urdu. It is a pre-Partition tradition that has been kept alive.Ram Leelas are being performed in Hindi. But the one organised in Sector 15 is telling the tale in Urdu. Why? Well, because the organisers originally belong to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan. The first version of a mix of Hindi and Urdu Ram Leela was performed in 1976 in Palwal, Haryana. And the tradition has continued ever since.Camera: Abhishek Ranjan and Athar RatherEditor: Puneet BhatiaProducer: Abhishek Ranjan and Shadab Moizee We'll get through this!
