New Delhi: Amidst the Dussehra celebration all across the country, a celebratory atmosphere of Punjab has caught the limelight. An old video on Ravana dancing has gone viral over the web on Thursday. Apart from giving a dramatic performance, ‘Ravana’ decided to entertain the audience by dancing Bhangra on “Mitra da naa chalda.”
A Twitter user has shared this 30-second video clipping where a man is seen dressed as Ravana. The man is matching steps with the beats, dancing Bhangra. He keeps aside the gun he was carrying to dance. He was dressed in classic black-gold attire with a crown placed on his head. Besides, his co-actors were also accompanying him with the vibe created.
Often, in several parts of India Ramlila celebration takes place where people enact the life journey of Rama according to Hindu epic Ramayana. This celebration takes place during the festive season of Dussera.
From the time of share, the video got 21,000 views.

This was so common in the pind in the 80’s / 90’s. I remember it from my childhood as well. The Hindu Punjabis would happily take part (along with everyone else). Anyone not from Punjab wouldn’t understand. https://t.co/ZuP4UAMCtO

It’s quite normal in rural areas. I still remember that in my childhood late 90’s my village was doing Ramayan every year and to entertain people Hanuman Ji was doing some tricks or Ravan and Ram ji had some funny punchlines. And those jhankis in between the episodes.
