This is the national bird of India, flaunting his beautiful feathers for all to see. The embellishment and the bright colours are signature of the Meenakari tribe of Rajasthan. The Meenakars belong to the Sonar or Sohail caste of Kshatriyas, and identify themselves with the name of Meenakar or Verma. Like many tribesmen, the Meenakaris are wary of outsiders, and treasure the knowledge they have exquisite craft.
