The dance drama begins with Lord Shiva telling the story of his greatest devotee “Ravana”. Ravana who is son of sage Vaishrava and demon princes Kaikeshi, who is a great scholar, a capable ruler, a maestro of the arts, political science and all the Vedas, but someone who wished to overpower the devas (Gods), started on fulfilling his selfish needs like lust, anger, dilusion, greed, pride, envy, ego against morality and made the world suffer. To save the world, lord Vishnu and goddess Lakshmi took avathara (incarnation) as Rama and Sita. The dance drama then moves on to present Ramayana story showcasing Rama and Sita’s wedding, Shurpanaka’s insult, golden deer hunt, Sita’s abduction, Jatayu mokshm, Hunuman joining Rama and finally the dance drama culminates with ten headed Ravana’s death at the hands of Rama.
