• Another storytelling tradition that must be mentioned here is that of the Phad-bachanas of Rajasthan. Just as in the case of the Chitrakathis or the Kaavads, these are sequential narratives that serve as aids around which oral narratives are structured. These are narratives where the storyteller talks about a central hero Pabuji and his exploits. The visuals are presented on a brightly coloured Phad, while the storytellers perform with music and song. Pabuji forms the main character in the Phad, and the narrators follow established tradition when describing his exploits.
