Every day a group of men from the tribe is dancing in the next village. The culminating celebration in this region takes place on the outskirts of Udaipur and within a few hours of dancing and playing a scene from tribal mythology, the most of them connected with life of a deity Rai Budiya. At the end, after the procession holy figure of the goddess Gauri is thrown into the water. The picture shows the scene laid out in the village square between the huts. Center is stuck lance and fireplace, around which sit older players and singers and actors waiting for their turn. On the right side of them you can see a group of young people armed with bows, and playing a scene of hunting. Around the scene is sitting or standing audience, mostly members of the tribe, but sometimes also other residents
