Damsels Playing Dandiya  (The Folk Dance of Gujarat)

Damsels Playing Dandiya (The Folk Dance of Gujarat)

Damsels Playing Dandiya (The Folk Dance of Gujarat)

Dandiya is one of the most cheerful socio-religious folk dances of Gujarat, mainly performed on the festival of Navratri as an aesthetic expression of people’s happy and joyful emotions and feelings, with the people all dressed-up in shiny and multicolored attires, called chaniya choli (a three piece lehenga set containing blouse, skirt and dupatta). This Madhubani painting depicts the same in its vibrant and colorful palette, painted with natural dyes and pigmentations with the help of brushes, twigs, fingertips, nib-pens and matchsticks. The red geometric border and bright orange background highlights the artist’s creativity with colors.

The two damsels are garbed in striking green and pink lehengas each, having designer motifs and eye-catchy weavings and borders; ornamented graciously in enormous jewels of jhumka, maangtika, colorful bangles and anklets, they express their feelings by carrying a slight smile on their face, large shiny eyes and that gesture of playing with the decorated dandiya sticks in hand. As the sticks strike and produce a sound, their inner happiness and strength boosts up to dance more.

The floral background at the top, seems to abut with the positive vibes of the dance by spreading its green branches altogether in various directions, as if dancing with the flow and red flowers outgrown with amusement with the two peacocks on the tree looking down to enjoy the ongoing festivities. A single glance at this painting instils vibes of creativity, gleefulness and festivity.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,

Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
