Lucknow: For the first time, the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIM-L) will be staging a play based on Ramayana at its upcoming annual cultural festival called “Manfest-Varchasva”. The festival is to be held from November 15-17, around the time when the Supreme Court verdict on the Ayodhya dispute is likely to be announced. IIM-L officials have approached the Ayodhya Research Institute (ARI), which comes under the state culture department, to seek funds for the Ramayana-based events. The ARI, in turn, has written to the tourism department seeking sponsorship and grant of Rs 2.50 lakh for the same. ARI director Y P Singh said that the IIM-L administration has reached out to them for collaboration. “The idea is to ensure that the new generation, especially management students, learns about the Ramayana. Lord Ram is the oldest management guru. He raised an army of simians whose language and culture he did not understand,” said Y P Singh. (IANS)
