But the Ram Leela which is being staged here by the students of JNV, Umathel, Thoubal, Manipur is only a portion of the conventional Ram Leela. Here the action of the play starts with Sita pleading Rama, her husband to capture a golden deer frolicking near their hut in the woods and Rama leaving the hut to shade the deer. While leaving the hut Rama left Sita in the care of Lakshman not to leave the hut at any cost. But the deer being disguised by Maricha, Ravana’s uncle kept taking Rama far and far away from the hut so that he might give Ravana the opportunity to abduct Sita. Rama sensing that it might not be an ordinary deer shot a potent arrow. The arrow hit the deer and while dying it transform into Maricha and shouted in the voice of Rama. On hearing the imitating voice of Rama, Sita became anxious and ask Lakshman to help his brother Rama. While leaving the hut, Lakshman drew a line encircling the hut asking Sita not to go beyond the circle. Seizing the golden opportunity, Ravan approach the hut but on trying to cross the circle, he was impeaded by brust of flame emanating from the line. Sita came out with a bowl filled with fruits and goes over to the sage crossing the circle. As soon as Sita crosses the line, Ravana catch hold of her hand and take away to Lanka in his chariot.
