Agricultural Rituals and Practices in Kangra Valley

This module contains a series of multimedia elements that elaborate the stories echoing through the mountains of the Kangra Valley in Himachal Pradesh, whether in the form of song, theatre, or traditional painting techniques. The stories are set across lines of kinship, usually between daughter-in-law and mother-in-law. Thematically, the stories elude to nature, resource use and mountain life, sometimes serving as advice on how to live, and at other times becoming a source of local history. While the tales are particularly Himachali in nature, they also resonate with folk forms across North India.
