Folktales of India – The Goat Who Ate Tigers
Research and Script
Folktales of India is a series Trip Creative has been working on to put forth the rich artistic and storytelling heritage of the Indian subcontinent. This series showcases curated tales animated in their regional art styles.
This tale, originally titled Narahari Das, penned by Upendrakishore Ray Chowdhury, comes from West Bengal and is about a goat who kept cool in duress. This folktale has been illustrated in a modern rendition of the Kalighat paintings of the same region.
Kalighat painting originated in 19th century West Bengal, in the vicinity of Kalighat Temple, Kolkata (named Calcutta then). From being souvenir items for visitors at the temple, the paintings developed into a distinct school of Hindustani painting over time.
