The video contains a documentation of Rathwa Tribe of Gujarat. A settled agricultural tribe of Western India. The film showcases a variety of traditional knowledge. The Rathwa Bhil Pottery offers the same quality as modern non-stick cookware! The film presents wooden sculpting which assumes a dimension of faith healing since sculptures are made in the memory of the dissatisfied souls of ancestors who appear in the dreams of their relatives to torment them. Pithoro Painting illustrates the embodiment of history and beliefs through art.
