From the CD

Bidesia is known for its intensity of presentation, simplicity of language and unsophisticated style. It is not a dance form, but a kind of ‘tamasha’, which reflects the culture of the region. It has rich variety and emotional content. The ingredients of the play include a speech-samvad-, different forms of poetry like ‘pad’, short poem, ‘vachun’, geet (song), ghazal and also a dance. It is enacted at nigh on a raised mound, which serves as a tage, and locally available lights are used. The costumes and the material, used for make-up, are local, like sindhoor, kajal, etc. Bhikhari, Thakur, the doyen of Bhojpuri theatre, especially the form known as Bidesia, did tremendous work to popularize his theatre and mesmerized the audience. He has written plays in Bhojpuri dialect which have been published. Watch the film to know more.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
