Jogini Shyamala Teenmar Dance at Secunderabad Bonalu 2019

 

Have you ever heard of Joginis? These women ‘marry’ the deity of their local temple and devote themselves to the upkeep and service of the temple and their Lord. While the practice was banned by the government in the year 1988 owing to widespread abuse by village elders, it is still in vogue in many Indian states.

Watch as Jogini Shyamala continues her yearly practice of dancing at the Secunderabad Bonalu in the 2019 celebrations.

An activist and actor, Jogini Shyamala’s traditional dance and status as a Jogini have faced opposition. She has also raised her voice against exploitation of Jogini women, and her NGO works towards the rehabilitation of women oppressed by the custom. At the same time, she continues to advocate the Jogini tradition by participating in all Jogini rituals, including her annual Teenmar Dance at Secunderabad.
