Navratri is a nine-night celebration of nine forms of Durga, the "remover of miseries". We all celebrate the triumph of good over bad.
The Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan portrayed as King Janak of Mithila, graced the stage in a regal avatar. It was unusual that the union minister dressed up as a Raja. But it did happen.
On Friday the Union Minister of Science and technology Dr. Harshvardhan enacted the role of Raja Janak, Sita's father in the Luv Kush Ramleela. He graced the stage in a regal avatar.
Donning a crown, mustache, long hair and embellishing costumes, Dr Harshvardhan delivered the dialogues in Hindi on the stage. The audiences were impressed by seeing this avatar of him. They cheered and clapped for him at the Red Fort.
For a second it was impossible to recognize the minister as his look was totally changed. He did makeup including a thick mustache and a kingly outfit for his avatar which made him look different.
The minister also shared some photos on Twitter and captioned it with, "My childhood was spent watching Ram Leela at the Red Fort and Chandni Chowk. But I will always remember this year's Ram Leela experience on the stage which will excite me throughout my life."
According to PTI, Harshvardhan also added some meaningful point to the mythological play which included the message about the clean environment. In the swayamvar scene where he had a conversation with Lord Rama, his character said, "I know you wish to live in a natural environment."
It truly states that if air remains clean and pure, it will lead to a healthy life.
Harshvardhan played his role with a true dedication which shows that he is a true actor as well. It was a prestige to see him playing as Raja Janak.
