About The DVD

IGNCA has undertaken a major audio-visual documentation of boatman culture of peninsular India into the lifestyle of traditional people whose main occupation is fishing.

The Coastal area of Andhra Pradesh plays a significant part while mapping boatmen and fishermen community of peninsular India. The boatmen of Andhra Pradesh belong to “Nolia’s community” which are further sub-divided into two castes “Jalia and Khalashi”. The film provides useful information to understand the lifestyle and culture of the community. They are engaged in one of the most strenuous occupation so that they can provide a source of sea food and in return get a very little reward for themselves. Beside this, the film shows the working aspects of boatmen and the way they use their traditional boats namely: Ishuvashel and Kattuwalam. The Nolia community spreads from ‘Amonipatnam to Naloor’ District. They celebrate an annual festival in remembrance of their god ‘Gram devi’.

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.
