Description
About The Book

AND LAND WAS BORN is a story from the Bhilala tribe who live in central India. The fantasy element in the story reflects the unfettered nature of the oral tradition. This book brings together picture and word in the spirit of that freedom and celebration.

In the beginning, the Bhilalas believe, there was only water. The harassed and wet subjects beg their lazy god to create land so that they can get dry and stay that way. Poor god is put to all sorts of trouble before this wish can be granted.

 

About The Author

Guna Baba's wild and wacky story appealed to the wild and wacky side of Sandhya Rao.

An editor with Tulika, she has written around 20 books, including the bestselling Ekki Dokki and the critically acclaimed My Friend the Sea and My Mother's Sari.

Uma Krishnaswamy is a student and teacher of art with a special interest in folk art and craft. She studied the painted walls from a documentary film based on this story, then blended in her own talent and imagination to create this unique book.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.

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,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
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.
