Celebrating Rajasthani Puppetry
HERE AT ATLAS BOOK CLUB WE LOVE TO CELEBRATE DIFFERENT CULTURES ALL OVER THE WORLD!
One of my recent favorites is the art of Rajasthani string puppetry, also known as “Kathputli.” This is one of the most vibrant aspects of Indian culture and is over a thousand years old. This type of puppetry narrates events from the history of the region, folklore, legends and myths complete with music and dialogue.
Our January Hatch Box features India! We have included a souvenir in the box to introduce your child to this beautiful celebration of Indian tradition. Order a Hatch Box to find out what it is!
In the meantime, enjoy this entertaining video celebrating Rajasthani puppetry.
