Despite rapid changes in their lifestyle, many Lambada tribal women in Krishna District still love to continue to wear their tradition-rich attire dominated by ornaments. They share the equal burden of running the house, maintaining the farm field and the cattle with men but still find time to design their traditional clothes and colourful ornaments. Old women do not prefer modern attire at all. Text and photographs by T. Appala Naidu.
