Aspect of Daily Life of Madhubani Women

The famous artwork of Mithila region of Bihar of the Indian Subcontinent, Madhubani paintings is famous world-wide. When it comes to ethnic 'tribal' paintings of India the name that top the list is Madhubani paintings. Madhubani paintings, also known as Mithila, Maithili, Godhna, and Chitra figure paintings are handmade paintings. People of Madhubani used to believe that each morning God visits their houses to bless them with luck and prosperity. So, Madhubani people started painting their walls, doors and floors with beautiful designs in order to welcome God. Today, the paintings from walls and floors have shifted to paper, cloth, satin, sarees, dupattas, etc. on the same format and themes of religion and mythology.

This amazing Madhubani painting depicts the life of Madhubani women in Bihar region. The women of Madhubani region are said to be very hardworking and dexterous. Besides making beautiful Madhubani paintings, these women are adept at household tasks. In this painting also, women of Madhubani regions can be seen performing several different tasks. Two women are busy grinding grains with the help of mortar and pestle, while another woman is busy cooking food on traditional gas, called Chullah or earthen fireplace. It depicts the joint family system and Madhubani culture.

Then there are kids standing beside their mothers. The scene is typically inspired by the rural region of Bihar, displaying how women of Madhubani spend their whole day working and looking after their families. The painting signifies the importance of family and family life. Also, it shows how people in Madhubani region are connected and live together in harmony. The beautiful colors used in the painting are extracted naturally and the floral patterned border of the painting simply makes it look gorgeous. Similar kinds of borders can be seen on the windows and doors of the house. The green color at the base signifies greenery and prosperity. This painting is done on handmade paper. Bandanwar (festoon) strung on the entrance is to create a cheery and celebratory atmosphere.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
