Joy of Life:

Puttamma is a charismatic soul who embodies the indigenous spirit of the Jenu Kuruba tribe she belongs to. Though theirs is a culture in transition, she is a shining symbol of their ancient tradition that venerates simplicity of being, mutual respect and understanding, building strong familial bonds, living in harmony with nature and taking delight in working with one’s own hands.

She is a deeply creative and expressive person who articulates her tribe’s wisdom not just through words and song, but through her life and work as well, which is a celebration of the joy of living. Watch Video –
