What Dwarka did on Dussehra

Phuchka stalls, dhunuchi naach, bhog, Ravana dahan, Ramlila, shindur khela, Bangla bands. Dwarka sure did have a blast!

What Dwarka did on Dussehra Deepanwita puja committee, Sector 22

Ganpati Apartments in Dwarka Sector 9 organised a Ramlila performance by children and a Ravana dahan on Vijayadashmi. 

As the children performed on stage, a screen acting as the backdrop showed pertinent scenes from the yesteryears' TV show Ramayana

Residents actively participated in the screening. The show was arranged by PP Bansal, a senior resident of the society, the projection was organised by Kamal Kapoor and operations handled by Ajay Sharma. Bansal also held an interactive session on Ramlila, and the episodes and scenes shown. The show was the brainchild of Advocate KS Bhati, president of the society, PP Bansal and SC Shukla, with assistance from Sanjeev Singh.
