Nakoba Jatara

Sketch


The Gonds (a tribal group) assemble from states of Maharastra, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Telangana to celebrate a week long festival called Jamoon and worship the serpent gods. The ceremonies are followed by a fair or Jatara where Gonds make purchases for the marriage season ahead.
