Ramlila is a dramatic re-enactment of the life of Lord Rama, according to the Hindu epic Ramayana. It displays the Rama-related dramatic plays and dance events, staged during the autumn festival of Navratri in India. The act is a demonstration of the war between good and evil. The play continues for nine-day and Ramlila celebration climax in the Dussehra night, where the giant grotesque effigies of evil such as of demon Ravana statues' are burnt, typically with fireworks.
