1. The entire village is in great excitement. All normal work is suspended. In the maidan hectic activity is going on. Hundreds of youngsters are moving here and there. Children are rolling on the ground and screaming in sheer joy. The men are extremely busy. They are building a stage. Wooden planks, bamboo matting, coconut mats are brought in large and scattered quantities. Everyone is bringing whatever he can supply: the dhobi of the village, for instance, is bringing numerous sheets and pieces of coloured cloth to drape the stage. The costumes are provided by the village folk themselves and everyone is happy that something he can give is going to be useful for the drama. The carpenter of the village has taken the responsibility of supplying all the planks and poles necessary for the erection of the stage. There is also the village school master who normally teaches boys reading and writing. Today he is directing the drama: he creates the dialogues and songs, and trains all the actors.
2. By evening the stage is ready :coconut fronds and banana stalks are tied up at the entrance of the stage as an auspicious decoration. The play starts at about ten or even later .Before that the organisers go around with pipe and drum and garlands to invite all the important citizens of the village. The rest of the audience seat themselves wherever they like.
3. There are certain formalities which are strictly observed in presenting a play: the narrator, most likely the school master himself with his face painted and wearing a cloak and turban, enters and offers his salutation to the gathering and then he tells them what tale they are about to see and explains its importance. The story is usually a well-known episode from the Ramayana or the Mahabharata.
