At a time when the evening light are about to fade and the night about to descend, the people are about to rest and all of a sudden the music of a clarionet would attack the attention of the people. It shows a sigh of the Nat-Bajaniya’s entry into the village.

            The Nat-Bajanias, blancing on a rope without support, was a common sight for the village masses. The urbanites know very little of them. they were the entertainers, substituting for drama or a film. The skills of the Nat-Bajaniya have lost their importance now-a-days. They could even perform the physical acrobatics like the artists of a circus.

            The kings and princes too loved to see the skills of the Nat and Bajaniya. The gifted them with money or villages whenever they were pleased. The Nat Bajanya are expert in walking on a rope without any support. While balancing, they keep a bamboo in their hands. Sometimes they even dance on the rope. Occasionally they keep a metal dish and walk on it. The performance of a Nat- Bajanya is full of risk. If he loses balance, there is nobody beneath to save him as it is seen in circus.

            The Nat- Bajanya usually wear breeches, shirtsand a turban. The dholak-player wears trousers. The women put on large petticoat, blouse nad a short saree. The Nat- Bajanya community has lost its traditional occupation by row. Many of them have shifted to other professions including physical labour.
