Lati is the make of my prime character of the series of pahadi toons. Lati(लाटि) simply means a silly girl in both gadwali and kumaoni dialect of Uttarakhand. Lati is a cartoon series where I showcase culture, tradition, and beauty of mountains through simple toons. Though Lati I want to spread knowledge about my native place, who’s deep culture and traditions are not known to outsiders. I share about it festivals, its folklores, its customs, rich food and portray life of a simple pahadi.
Lati is a girl who represents a everyday pahadi living in Himalaya. She wears the traditional gati dhoti saree, adores traditional ornaments, speaks pahadi language and talks about pahadi culture.
Few of my favourite works of the series are:
A map of Uttarakhand showing its traditional dresses worn by women of different ethenic groups.
Here I have talked about the local festivals of Uttarakhand
The season of uttarakhand
The food and food habits
