Ramesh Hengadi from Bapugaon, a small town 120 km from Mumbai, however, sees publishing as a way to introduce our own country to the nuances of tribal art. "These books take it beyond the interest of just art connoisseurs. And when you introduce a subtext, it usually appeals to more people than just art can ever reach," says the 33-year-old post-graduate in rural developmental studies. Hengadi lost no time in taking up Tara's offer to work on a book , Do!, that pictorially introduced children to the basic English verbs. Warli art, which Hengadi has inherited from his forefathers, specialises in line drawings that usually depict the daily engagements of the tribe. "Children were particularly fascinated by the fact that a picture done the Warli way showed a slice of their world without having to use a camera," says Geetha.
Be it London or a Hans tale, the world as seen through the work of these artists is a place of wonder.
