Kathputli Dance of Rajasthan is really adorable. Adorned with colourful attires, they dance, swirl and act representing varied themes of India. Till date I have enjoyed Kathputli dance only once and wish to watch more. What about you?

I have never witnessed any live Kathputli dance. My exposure to puppet dance is limited to internet only. I really wish to enjoy this creative art form live someday.

I have watched Kathputli dance once. It was organised in my nephew`s school. Various puppeteers participated in the show and enacted stories to educate students on topics like hygiene, cleanliness, education etc. I think it is a great medium to educate students. Any teaching method which has fun element easily grabs the attention of kids.

Kathputli dance is a traditional performing art form of Rajasthan. Through this dance form, various mythological stories are narrated. It is especially popular in the rural areas of the state.

Did you know the term Kathputli is composed of two Rajasthani words including Kath and Putli? The term Kath means wood and Putli means a doll.

You are right, Anamika. Kathputli Dance is a good way to teach kids. But I don`t think it is that popular in the schools.

This performing art portrays the folk art of our country. It is very entertaining but nowadays we hardly get to watch such shows
