Telling stories from the epics using hand-drawn tableaux images in scroll paintings with accompanying live sounds have been an age old Indian tradition. These tales mostly the familiar stories of gods and goddesses are revealed slowly through choreographic movements of painted glass slides in a lantern which create illusions of movements. And so when the Lumire brothers representatives held the first public showing at Mumbai s Bombay Watson s Hotel on July 7 1896 the new phenomenon did not create much of a stir here and no one in the audience ran out at the image of the train speeding towards them as it did elsewhere. The Indian viewer took the new experience as something already familiar to him.
