About the DVD

The film traces the unique Mirasan tradition of the Punjab dating back to pre-partition days when Muslim women participated in life cycle celebrations, adding elements of their own, breaking borders of religions, at the socio-cultural level. The film nostalgically traverses this harmonious space, in which the Mirasans cry on death, bring laughter at birth and marriage and bridge communities. Today, children of Mirasan are struggling to survive with dwindling patronage and are moving out from family space to public space.
