On the sixth day of Luv Kush Ramleela held at 15 August Park, Red Fort, there was a huge crowd of spectators on the ground. The event held at the historic monument has always been a highlight of the festival. While the Ramleela was stalled in the previous years owing to the pandemic, this year it returned with much fervour and enthusiasm. It has also adopted an environment-friendly approach this year. Instead of going over the top to show the scene of Lanka Dehen, this time the committee did it symbolically.
According to the President of Leela, Ashok Aggarwal, due to government guidelines, they did not use fireworks for the scene. See pictures from Red Fort's Luv Kush Ramleela here:
