New Delhi: The Department of Art, Culture, and Languages of the Delhi government will organise a Ramleela in Urdu at Sunder Nursery, as part of its “Urdu Heritage Festival” commencing February 22.

The 'Dastaan-e-Ramayana: Ramleela in Urdu' will be performed by the theatrical group Shri Shraddha Ramlila on February 24 to celebrate the shared values of both cultures.

The Urdu Ramleela will narrate the mythological tale of Lord Ram's victory over Ravana with a unique twist, an official statement by the department said.

"The Urdu Ramleela is a perfect linguistic blend that unites the beauty of Hindi and sophistication of Urdu," it said.

The Urdu Heritage Festival of the Delhi government's art and culture department and Urdu Academy will also stage several other performances including a panel discussion on Urdu's perspective on Ramayana to explore the cultural dimensions associated with it.
