Wisdom From The Wilderness – Pradip Prabhu, Shiraz Bulsara, Kashtakari Sanghatna

Painted and Narrated by the Warli Adivasis of District Thane

The fables and other stories in this book are part of the oral traditions of the Adivasi Warlis, Koknas, Kolis and Katkaris, relating to various aspects of their life, culture and ethos. Kashtakari Sanghatna (or ‘Organisation of Toilers’) has undertaken to record these narratives, reflecting the down-to-earth wisdom of a people who have long lived as close-knit, self-governing communities in harmony with nature. By rendering the stories in a visual and written form—both in Marathi and English—the Sanghatna hopes to make them available once again to the Adivasi people—to help them recover their history, indigenous knowledge and traditions.

This English rendition aims to share the traditional wisdom of the Adivasis with the world at large.Presently, the continued assault of ‘modernity’ threatens the very core of the Adivasi identity and aspiration of being and becoming.While they re-appraise their roots and the wealth that lies in their cultural wisdom and in nature around them—they seek the solidarity of friends and co-travellers.
