Suddenly the quiet of the night comes to life with a million shades of green complemented by birds, animals and fishes of all sizes, shapes and colours waking up to a new dawn. Nature at it’s peak, it rings a bell with a string that we have attached to the raw beauty of rain forests and auspicious unadulterated earthy goodness.
Soil celebrated for it’s fertility, forests celebrated for their density and wildlife celebrated for it’s colour and diversity, the plains of Bihar have been home to art inspirations for thousands of years.

Home to one of the most ancient cultures of the country, Mithila paintings today are celebrated all over the world and hold the prestigious Geographical Indication mark that authenticates the art form’s originality only to Maithili.
