Fellowship to puppet artist

Binita Devi

The string that set into motion of the art of puppetry – a dying art form- is all set to get some youthful energy. Binita Devi, a puppet artist, has recently won a junior fellowship award from Ministry of Culture, New Delhi on the basis of “Magnetic Puppetry”. Her research works have been published in a few International, National as well as Regional journals to provide awareness about the vanishing art “Puppetry”. She has performed various shows on puppetry using modern techniques to bring interest among the new generation. She is the Principal of a cultural institution “Surojit Academy” at Jalukbari, Guwahati. She also teaches the art of puppetry as a mentor to her students. Presently, she has been working on her research project on “Magnetic Puppet” under Assam Science Technology and Environment Council.
