Patachitra and Pater Gaan are unique cultural traditions of Bengal. The patuas paint stories on long scrolls of cloth. The most unique thing is that all the colour used by the artists are the natural ones, extracted from different vegetables, fruits and flowers. Social themes like protection of environment, planting of trees etc have also placed in their creation. The village is home to around 250 Patuas, a unique tribe of folk artists who are painters, lyricists, singers and performers all in one. The artists have organized themselves under chitratare cluster.
