Puppetry – a dying art !
I think the colorful attire and setup is a very important ingredient of the show, so I am also uploading the color version of the same. It was a very skillful rendition , not just a demonstration of puppet mastery but the accompanying song and music played by equally skilled artisans. Well worth the time and money spent. This one is near the Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer and organized by a group called Desert Cultural Centre (Ranked #15 of 40 things to do in Jaisalmer by Lonely Planet travellers). if you are visiting Jaisalmer or plan to visit, spare aside some time to go check it out (if it still exists then !)
