'Love has no boundaries
When it comes to love, the tribal folk know no boundaries, they are not scared of showing their love. What’s interesting is showing love almost always means either moving in or asking a woman into marriage.
The Bastar craftsmen depict companionship as a necessary trait of tribal love in their art forms. Many of their handicrafts, paintings, wall arts have tribal couples doing something important or something totally mundane together. There are several unique customs to express love for each other. The Gond Maria tribe organizes a Gotul - a place of recreation and interaction between teen boys and girls. This is the first time when they learn to express what they feel to each other.
Eventually, when a boy likes a girl, he pays a small sum of money to her parents seeking permission to move in with her. When the parents grant it, the girl happily moves in with the boy. Some years later, and in many cases, many children later, the couple may decide to get married in a formal tribal community with other witnesses. Such couples get social sanctions like other couples. The Bastar tribes do not banish people from loving. And the craftsmen depict this spirit of loving and companionship in their handicrafts.
