We all know that folk theatre is losing its significance with the emergence of new forms of entertainment. Modern Indian music and cinema can easy grab the attention of the audience but the fact is not for too long. It tends to get monotonous and repetitive. People should focus more on folk theatre forms like shadow theatre for its surreal charm and rustic magnificence. I cam to know about it from my recent visit to Kerala. Can anyone tell me more about this lost art?

Yes, you are right. Nothing can replace the beauty of a folk theatre. I am lucky to see a puppet theatre when I visited Rajasthan and now looking forward to the shadow theatre. Thanks for the information.
