Deepavali, the festival of lights, is celebrated every year by Hindus around the world. In this edition of A Lighter Side of History in conjunction with Deepavali, master storyteller Kamini Ramachandran will share the story of The Ramayana, the ancient epic at the heart of the festival. Participants will be treated to an exclusive viewing of her private collection of Ramayana artefacts, such as antique story cloths and vintage shadow puppets, which reveal The Ramayana’s influence on arts and culture. The talk also includes a simple flower garland-making activity.
