Get Damsels Playing Dandiya – The Folk Dance of Gujarat

Dandiya is one of the most cheerful socio-religious folk dances of Gujarat, mainly performed on the festival of Navratri as an aesthetic expression of people’s happy and joyful emotions and feelings, with the people all dressed-up in shiny and multicolored attires, called chaniya choli (a three piece lehenga set containing blouse, skirt and dupatta). This Madhubani painting depicts the same in its vibrant and colorful palette, painted with natural dyes and pigmentations with the help of brushes, twigs, fingertips, nib-pens and matchsticks.
