This is a typical Myanmar story. It has been told to children’s for generations and has become a legend in Myanmar. It goes as follows.
Once there was an old man in a village. He mainly earned his living by pounding rice on hire. He had no friends or companions except for an old rabbit. For the whole day (and part of the night under the moon), the old man pounded the paddy. Meanwhile, the old rabbit crouched nearby eating the chaff that his master threw away.
History has many marvels up its sleeve. These marvels consist of traditions, monuments, culture and customs. Myanmar people too have been bestowed with numerous customs and traditions by their ancestors. Puppet art is one such tradition which was very famous in 17th and 18th century. During that time, puppets were not only used for entertainment purposes but also as a communication medium for the rural population. Puppeteers were nothing short of national heroes serving a public cause.
