Stage Features: 

Once the padam has been enacted, Ravana beckons his brother one after the another.  To Kumbhakarna he promises to build an exclusive palace to have undisturbed sleep.  He offers to build a house to pray as Vibheeshana pleased.  Thereafter, Ravana bids farewell to the brothers.

He turns and takes a peculiar culmination called NALAMIRATTI (wewill call it Quadra-Paced Culmination and departs as if to conquer the worlds.

Vibheeshana returns and performs a brief dance sequence called “Dhanashi”  to mark the end of the play – or end of the day’s performance.
