The experience of staying with the pulavars and learning the art of thol pava koothu was one of the eye opening experiences for me. It took me just 4 days to learn what it is to respect your work and others around you. It was an overwhelming experience to receive so much love and care. We all were like a big family staying together, eating together, working together and learning together.

When it comes thol pava koothu, I think it’s one of the most beautiful traditional art forms and It’s amazing how it’s performed every time with the same zeal and energy. What really surprised me was the way stories of Ramayana was depicted in a conversation format and It was a visual treat as well.  The form and movements of the puppets were very impactful and the detailing on the puppets were remarkable.

My learning from thol pava koothu would be to pay attention to detailing as they make a difference during the performance and most importantly to respect your work and others !
