Hello

Synopsis

Traditionally, the Santhali tribe did not have writing. Their stories and myths were preserved and passed on orally through generations. Each narration has a different form, much like the rocks of a nearby hill that come in various hues. Never seen and only heard, a woman from the community narrates a tale about the origin of creation and how the first house was built.
