  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Puppets Making

     

    KATHPUTLI puppetry and magic have been popular forms of traditional entertainment in India for long, but in recent years, the puppeteers have been desperately trying to preserve their dying art form, and many of them are choosing to leave the profession as they find it difficult to make ends meet - the ancient art of puppet theatre is in rapid decline now, it has been facing stiff competition from cinema, television, video and computers and today there are few takers for live puppet shows.
