This is Karpuri Devi, 86, younger sister-in-law of the renowned Madhubani artist, Mahasundari Devi, whose name is synonymous with this folk style. Sitting in the veranda of her single storey home, which she has painted with ornate patterns and figures in Madhubani, Karpuri reminisces about the days when she had first picked up the brush, “Decades ago, women in the village were not allowed to step outside the confines of the home. We had to be very discreet about our work. Typically, we used twigs, brushes, matchsticks or nib-pens to make paintings with themes from the Ramayana or what we saw of daily life around us. For years, the wall was our canvas. Paper came much later.”

The wail of a train engine The silence of these wooded hills is constantly broken by the rushing streams, the tall waterfalls and the wails of a train engine. Trekkers scurry off the railway track and hastily cross the dark tunnels in anticipation of the appearance of a great mass of metal rattling the rails and breathing smoke and heat. Trains, passenger and goods, play hide and seek with the mountain curves, appearing and disappearing behind the bends. Due to the incline of the track from Kulem to Castle Rock two engines lead the train up the slope complimented by two other engines pushing it forward from the rear.

People of KalapThe people are simple and friendly, untouched by the mistrust pervading our urban spaces they are excellent hosts showering utmost affection on visiting tourists. The children are naughty and greatly at ease with the wild as the valleys and mountain tops are their playgrounds. While wandering the lanes of the village it is not uncommon to be invited for a snack of rotis, delicious ghee and pickle downed with butter milk. Life is tough in this inhospitable terrain but the spirit of the people is unwavering.
