Editor’s Note: The forest goddess was angry with hunters who killed animals recklessly and felled trees without mercy. As they broke into dance to the beating of the drum, the jungle goddess took away the sound and sealed it in a jar. The hunters could not speak, as they could not produce sound, and the drums fell silent. The goddess tossed the jar of sound to a cloud high in the sky. How the hunters repented and learnt to respect life and got back their voice is beautifully told in this story. The forest comes alive with breathtaking pictures of the BHIL art form. A joy to read.
