The Warli tribes of India are an ancient colourful people who are hard pressed to preserve their culture in changing times.They love their lifestyle ..of hunting and farming which is reflected in their paintings with rice paste .Even their musical instruments are made from natural elements .but progress finds the warlis seeking jobs elsewhere .This has resulted in their change of dress as well . they wear pants and shirts like other people who have lost their identities.However we were lucky to get them in their costumes . It was some effort to trace them and get this footage . We drove deep into the forest up to a cliff where they were having their get together.They were kind to cooperate.But there was a hitch ..a storm was brewing up and the light was bad . However Nature smiled at us and the clouds parted for an hour to give us beautiful evening light . And we immediately went about our business with our professional equipment .I instructed the cinematographer the way I wanted the dance to be covered .And the camera rolled and the dance began .Ooh were we happy to get the whole dance without the clouds covering the sun and the rain too seemed to wait for us .Having canned the shots we loaded our equipment in our vans and the thunder claps gave the announcement of the approaching storm .We drove a long way back to the city of Mumbai through dense forest road . The lightning felled trees around us .But the flaming trees fortunately did not obstruct the road too much and let us pass.Returning back , I edited this matter on avid and found the effect to be quite satisfactory . I hope viewers find it a rare record of a dying culture .
