The Revellers Of Tush Festival

The Revellers Of Tush Festival

The Revellers Of Tush Festival

The Tushu festival of Bengal is a joyous harvest festival. As the month of Poush (Bengali calendar) draws to a close and ripe crops of rice (‘tush’ is the local word for rice bran) glisten in the tropical sun, the rural people of parts of Bengal gather for celebration. There is singing and dancing and poojana of the auspicious first reap of rice, which has been depicted in ample detail in the folk painting on this page. It is a motley of revellers and instruments, even a bride who is headed to her husband’s home in the midst of the festival.

The tribespeople are dressed in dhotis and sarees, spun purposely to be worn for the Tushu festival. The colour palette is basic yet vibrant - pastels such as blue and orange and crimson and yellow, set off by the white of the handmade shell ornaments of the men and women. The women dance with abandon as their men beat the dhak, life-sized drums the staple of Bengali festivals. Note the brightly coloured palanquin at the centre of the painting on the top - a young dusky beauty sits therein, weeping her eyes out.

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.
