change this text


The tribal art of India is widely neglected. This one is unique in sense of its mechanism, character, and existence. Chaador Bandhni, the puppetry art of Santhali Tribe is a variety of table puppet theatre prevailing among the Adivasis of Bengal, Bihar, and Jharkhand. The puppeteer performs in the open with a central rod fully covered by a cloth, accompanied by songs. It is believed that these puppet dances represents the first primate form of puppetry before the storytelling in the epic tradition came into vogue.
