Nandana prints aren't just prints for pretty tribal aesthetic, they come with a rich history of their own. Their story begins from the time of lord Ram, when sage Parashuram, in a fit of anger, went on a rampage killing Kshatriyas. Some of them hid in a temple of Devi hinglaj mata to save themselves from his wrath. Because they hid themselves they were known as ”chhipas” (Chhipna means to hide).
These people asked their Goddess to give them some work and so she gave them a wooden block and asked them to print. ("chapai ka kamm karo" translates "do printing work")
The prints these people developed came to be known as ‘Nandana’.
Another printer added to the story, saying that when the Kshatriya went into hiding, their kuldevi distributed different work/skill/profession to the people who hid. A group that was led by Sant Nandeo was left behind as their leader arrived late and no work was left for them. Kuldevi Hinglaj mata picked up a piece of wood and suggested that they could print using these blocks. But the question was what would they printing on? So she gave them her "meend" (dead skin collected from rubbing on the skin) to use for printing as a resist and suggested other materials like natural gum for preparing the resist. This is how the Namdeo chhipa printing community came into existence and what these people printed came to be known as Nandana.
According to these printers, there is a temple of Devi Hinglaj Mata somewhere in Pakistan and these people migrated from there into Rajasthan and eventually to this village in Madhya Pradesh.
Nandana prints are made only in Tarapur, MP by The Namdeo Chhipa Community.
