About the DVD

Bidesiya is a vastly popular vibrant, throbbing performing art form of Bihar. As the name itself suggests the soul of Bidesiya lies in the separation of a woman from her man as he goes to far off places to earn livelihood. The man who conceived conceptualized and literally rejuvenated Bidesiya was Bhikhari Thakur. He produced a path breaking play titled as Bidesiay in which he played an important role. The central characters in Bidesiya performance are Nat and Nati. The costume of Nat is colorful Dolangi Dhoti Kameez and Pagri, Nati traditionally a male performer wears Ghaghra Choli. The musical instruments used are majira or jhanj, dholak, khajri, nagara and harmonium played by feet.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
