Puppets :

Kathputlis or wooden puppets are a common and popular form of entertainment in the villages of Rajasthan. The puppeteer is the storyteller who unwinds a folk tale or an episode from the Hindu epics - the Ramayana or the Mahabharata - along with the deft interplay of various puppets, each signifying a character in the tale. Unfortunately, puppet theater in India is under serious threat from television and cinema, and it may soon be curtains for this animated style of amusement. You may not find too many puppeteers these days, but what you will find is that these well-crafted marionettes are up for sale and look quite sensational in urban homes. The puppets are generally two feet in height having a wooden head with an enormous nose and large eyes. The rest of the body is made of colorful and bright pieces of cloth and stuffed rags, which also allow for free movement. Unless they are horse riders, the puppets have no legs but are covered with a long pleated skirt. The puppet has a long string for the head which reaches the manipulator and then joins the waist the strings from the two hands of the puppet are joined to the hands of the manipulator.
