About The DVD

Admired for its pristine beauty, the Nilgiri Hills in South India are also remembered as a space for traditional people like Toda, Kota, Kurumba,, Irula and Badaga. Their simple lifestyle woven with socio-ritualistic fabric creates a unique symbiosis of culture and belief system. The file looks through the eye of a Toda family, their surrounding and their interactive life style within nature where “buffaloes” remain the focus.

Todas call themselves the man with sacred buffaloes. Their language, hair style, dress ad conical habitats clearly constitute a distinctive cultural heritage. Their sacred Dairy temple with circular base and conical roof have carvings of sacred buffaloes, Sun, moon and icons from epic.

This film reflects the life of Toda through their songs, Toda life revolves around their sacred dairies and when a dairy is rebuilt or renovated it is a sacred occasion. Toda dairies are barrel vaulted and divided into two rooms. The inner room is the sanctum sanctorum where sacred dairy equipments are kept and milk is churned. Toda religion mainly focuses on sacred buffaloes. Toda marriage is initiated in childhood and completed at maturity. The Bow and Arrow ceremony performed during the seventh month of pregnancy determines the social and paternity of the unborn child and its place in Toda society.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
