“Rama Prateeksha” is not merely a synoptic presentation of Rishi Valmiki’s Ramayana, it is also a wonderful tale about unflinching selfless devotion towards Lord Ram. In essence, the ballet upholds the value system of righteousness and honesty espoused by Lord Ram. From the young Lord Ram engaged in protecting Maharishi Vishwamitra’s fire rituals to his infamous and heartrending exile and finally to the great battle against Ravana, the ten-headed demon King of Lanka, the ballet provides an insight into the truly benevolent character of Lord Ram. Through this abridged journey of the Lord’s life one also encounters pure devotion from divine souls like Ahalya, Sita, Sugreeva, Hanuman, Bharata, the citizens of Ayodhya and others who had willingly surrendered themselves to the Lord.
