About the DVD


The lineage of the Garo people of Western Meghalaya goes back to Tibet. The Garo hills are interspersed with patches of low-lying plains bordering Assam and Bangladesh. The life of Garos revolve around the Sun God, who rules their Jhum or shifting cultivation, and envelops the dynamics of their life ways. The Wangala festival of the Garos is the time for celebrating the bounty and well being, bestowed by sun God. It is the time to rejoice; time to choose the Bride and the Groom; and the time for young persons to mingle freely. The film place the life and times of Garos in the background of their traditional philosophy and belief systems, and provides a mirror to the Garo mindscape.

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.
