Delhi 6 is the address that connects you to the stories of the by-lanes of Old Delhi. It is here that all festivals are still celebrated with the traditional flavour. And, the streets come alive as the Diwali festival approaches. Both amateurs and professionals can be seen enacting scenes from the Hindu epic Ramayana. It is at this time that we will be conducting the “Dushamukha” walk and will be going on a Haveli hop. We will be exploring the lesser know stories of Ramayana, especially those written from the point of view of Ravana. Darwesh, a storytelling organisation that crafts experiential journeys that connect people to authentic and unique experiences, will host the walk. Yuveka Singh, founder and director of Darwesh talks about their storytelling initiatives.

What to expect?

We will be first visiting an Old Dharamshala in Sita Ram Bazaar in Old Delhi. Here we will be listening to stories of Navratra and the Devi (goddess) and we will also decode some of the rituals.

From there, we will visit an old Haveli in “Kucha Pati Ram” where we will meet a Behrupiya artist and hear how the tradition started in Old Delhi.

Behrupiyas have been a part of Indian tradition and culture. They survived under the patronage of Kings but are now on the verge of extinction.

After that we will visit an old Laxmi-Narayan Temple in Kucha Pati Ram where we will meet ‘Tesu’, a mythological character and hear about other traditional practices that have now become extinct.

We will stop over for some local homemade Kulfi.

And finally we will see a musical enactment from the perspective of Ravana at another Haveli in Khatigoan wali gali.
