Tilapur Ka Rakshas
a fairytale for children
by Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust from Delhi (India)
Tilapur is a town on a hill. A perfectly ordinary town, ruled over by an extremely popular King. A town which people leave in droves in fear of a monster that terrifies it. A town at war, where people are banned from reading books of their choice.
In this town lives Guddu, separated from his family after the monster's attack. In this town lives Chhotu, who reads books in secret, and asks dangerous questions. When Tilapur's warriors return from a war they no longer understand, they join hands with Chhotu and Guddu to take on the monster.
