India | Uttar Pradesh | Varanasi


Nakkatyya, a stage performance, is conducted every year in October at Chetganj in the holy city of Varanasi. Based on the epic Ramayana, the play describes the story of Surpnakha, the sister of Ravana, who comes to lure Ram and then his brother Lakshman. Lakshman chops off her nose and she goes back to her brother Ravana, crying and vowing to take revenge.
