The Shy Bride

“My feelings are too loud for words and too shy for the world.”
~ Dejan Stojanovic

If you have ever been to Jaipur, these lovely Kathputlis (string puppets), are everywhere. The most popular kind of puppetry in India, the word kath means wooden, putla is a lifeless doll. These single-string marionette based shows are a rage in the region, and you can take this lovely couple home as a keepsake. The shows usually revolve around Indian folklore, moral stories and feature traditional Rajasthani folk music. It’s an absolute delight to watch.
