Photographer's Note

Jaladhar Munda a local tribal man in Murguma, a small village scape near Ayodhya Hills in Purulia District, West Bengal, India.
Purulia one of the lesser privileged districts of West Bengal, is on the western parts of of the state and is probably a part of the old Chhota Nagpur Plateau region. The region is rocky, the soil is hard and harsh unlike the Gangetic regions in the south or the Tea garden areas or hills in the north of the state.
This area has small rocky hills that provide provide beautiful surface for rock climbing, surrounded by plains. Every season from winter, spring, monsoon or summers add a different flavor to its scenic beauty.
The region has migrated settlers and a concentrated population of tribal people, some Shanthals, Mundas and Mahatos, who add a special attraction to this region.
This place is also famous for the tribal Chao dance, a martial art dance form, where the performers wear huge masks and perform acrobatic dance steps. The dances mainly depict stories about victories, either of local heros like Birsha Munda, or stories relating to Gods and Goddesses.
This photograph is of a 70 year old local tribal man who worked in Arannyak a camping resort and sat with us during nights to chat about his youth, childhood and life during night. The photograph was taken outside the camp in complete darkness in a faint light that of a battery lit small torch.
