MADHUBANI- THE EXOTIC ART OF MITHILA
The aim of this paper is to preserve the originality of the art form. The recent trends of consumerism, market and selling attitude have made this art a maidservant of the moneyed people. The selling of art and modifying it is not bad but it should not affect the creativity of the people. Due to the contemporary styles the real essence of this folk art is disappearing which in turn is also depleting the values associated with it. A serious thought is urgently required before the traditional creativity and values are drained out to nothing. NGO professionals, researchers, folk artists, and people concerned all should take concrete steps and the appropriate measures to retain this art in its originality because it’s a legacy being passed down from generations.
