Illustrator : Uma Krishnaswamy
In the beginning, the Bhilalas believed, there was only water. The harassed and wet subjects beg their lazy god to create land so that they can get dry and stay that way. The poor god is put to all sorts of trouble before this wish can be granted. With a fantasy element that reflects the unfettered nature of the oral tradition, this zany folktale from Central India has striking pictures based on original mud-wall paintings.

Easy and enjoyable
"Rao's simple style of narration and structuring of sentences make reading easy and enjoyable. Uma Krishnaswamy's illustrations reflect the style of the original paintings found on the mud walls of the huts of the Bhilalas. She has imbibed the spirit of the originals combining her creative imaging to capture the essence of the tale." - The Hindu, September 1998
