About the DVD


The film documents the lost heritage of Urumi - a rare weapon of Kalaripayattu, the martial art of Kerala. In older days, it used to have seven flexible blades, running up to 12 feet, though no such specimen can be found today. The film traces its origin and tries to understand it’s mystical dangerous portents and symbolism. The martial art tradition goes back to the mythological time of Parashurama and is adumbrated in ancient manuscripts of Dhanurveda. The film imbibes the morality or Urumi from great masters of martial art and shows the rigorous and exacting training required under the vigilant eyes of a Guru for using it efficiently and appropriately. The women never logged behind in using this art for survival. The film also traces the Nair resistance of colonial days, using Urumi.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
