Dancing on Walls

The wall paintings of the Warli people of Maharashtra are famous worldwide for their simplicity and their liveliness. Beginning with the story of little Shirvi who wants to give her parents a happy surprise, author Shamim Padamsee takes a whimsical journey into how the art may have been born. And along that journey, Shirvi meets the magical moon people...

Reviews: Deewaro Par Nritya (Hindi edition, Dancing on Walls)...is an imaginative, fanciful story woven around the origin of Warli paintings... The resolution of the story is delightful. The illustrations are colorful, vivid and magical, especially when the little creatures begin to dance in celebration. An author's note about Warli paintings would help inform young readers and add a dimension to the book. -Varsha Bajaj, author of childrens books
