In between the cultivated fields were patches of untamed growth in which wild flowers blossomed. The names of these plants were known to the primal settlers of this land like the Adiyars, Paniyars, Vedas, and Jaina Kurubas. This last tribe who are closest in many ways to the forest, having in the past made their livelihood from collecting honey, are generally landless. It was set in a village of this tribe that Baby had written a play around the Guda hut which is constructed when a girl comes of age, and where she is confined until the village is able to organize a celebration to welcome her into the tribal community.
