The Ramleela began with an aarti of Lord Ram. It was showed how Ravana obtains a boon from Lord Brahma that neither the Devas nor the Danvas (Rakshsas) would be able to kill him. That is why; Vishnu had to take birth as Rama to free the world from the scourge of the demon king. The scene of Rama breaking the bow of Parshuram to win Sita as his wife was also staged.
