This is a play for the street audiences....Mother is worried about his only Son who has gone to jungle ( Forest of Sundarban, West Bengal, India full of man eater tigers)
Protection from the Gods:
The local villagers seek protection from tigers by worshiping the Hindu goddess ""Banobibi."" She is considered the mother of the forest, while her Muslim consort, Dakshin Rai, is regarded as the overall ruler of the Sundarbans.
Before setting off into the mangroves most people make an offering at Banobibi's shrine, asking for her protection from the tiger's fury. Typical offerings include rice, fruit, and flowers.
Dakshin Rai is usually depicted as riding on the back of a tiger and legend says the lord of the Sundarbans can enter the big cat's body. Musicians beat sacred drums in his honor.
