Summary:
"Celebrating 25 years of the Sangre Grande Ramleela Committee, 1990-2015." Examines the ancient Hindu festival known as Ramleela, originally from the provinces of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, India, and how it developed in the rural town of Sangre Grande in North East Trinidad. "The author reveals details of triumph over adversity and of battles won and lost on and off the field, as he delves into the grandeur of this ancient tradition of Indian civilization brought to life in that rural town during the last 25 years."
