The Ram brigade

( 25/05/2018 )

Images of Ram Navami at Ranchi, 2018. Antics, frolics, bravado marks the occasion, which sees the local ” bravehearts ” flooding the streets.

Slogans of ” Jai Shri Ram” permeate the atmosphere, and adding to the festivities, a young man, fearless, spits fire. Young men tramp around with swords, the local police keeping a nervous vigil.

Sure enough, there are many rowdy elements on the road today. Shri Ram himself might have wanted milder celebrations. May his tribe increase.

  1. I have lived in Ranchi for two years and have witnessed the Ram Navami there. I remember being in the main city, Firayalal Chowk and I have to admit I was terrified.
