Ramayana is a Sanskrit epic, traditionally attributed to Valmiki, that concerns the banishment of Rama from his kingdom, the abduction of his wife Sita by a demon and her rescue, and Rama's eventual restoration to the throne.

Sita Haran (kidnapping of Sita by demon king Ravana)was also described by one of the participant while focusing on the dignity and purity of Maa Sita. The relation between Lord Rama and his able disciple Lord Hanuman was also expressed through one of the poetry.
