Archaeology of The Indian Cave Theatre: A Study of Ramgarh Hill of Chhattisgarh
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8176462608 / 9788176462600; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Student of theatre, wherever his particular interest lies, will accept that the Ramgarh hill Cave theatre of Chhattisgarh State is the oldest known theatre of the world. We find in Ramgarh hill caves a richness of diversity of archaeological Material (along with the cave paintings) which can scarcely be equalled in world. Compared with most other genre of theatrical literature, however, the repertoire of the cave theatre is considerably less prolific, less varied, less immediately appealing and partly for this reason the cave theatre of Ramgarh hill has been ignored both by Archaeologist and theatrical historian. Historical factors produced an artificial break in interpretation of spontaneous Drama in Chhattisgarh. This Book Archaeology of the Indian Cave Theatre summarizes the pioneering interpretation of Professor H.L. Shukla in the field of cave theatre research. The data are presented in a well understandable and excellent illustrated form. Therefore, the book is indispensable for archaeologists, theatrical persons, Historians and interested readers. The book epitomizes Shukla`s greatness and should prove to be of sustained interest and permanent value to all interested in understanding Indian Art and ethos. 110427

Chhattisgarh Rediscovered: Vedantic Approaches to Folklore
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8173050589 / 9788173050589; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an invitation to scholars to rediscover the past glory of Chhattisgarh : A little known but fascinating part of middle India. The purpose of this book is to present a new method to explore the 'hidden' meaning in the oral tradition of Chhattisgarh. The book then presents a semiotic approach to the oral history of Chhattisgarh. It is the history from the bottom which betrays the anguish of a community, and demands the shaping of a just and realistic future for the under-previleged and outcasts in Indian society. It is the use of mythology to present history. A new history has been filtered from the mythical data of Chattisgarh. Mythical thoughts of Guru Ghasidasa mediate the gaps between continuity and change, thereby authenticating the idea of 'total history' of Chhattisgarh. The book expresses both the tradition and the actual. It is a combination of intra-cultural (Sastra and Loka) and intercultural relations: therefore intertextalism is connected not only with historic texts but also with folkgenre. It may thus give a broader dimension to the present-day realities and past happenings. It is hoped that the book will be a cause for collective action. It is also hoped that freedom and human dignity will continue to be the central concern of all the works of history. Printed Pages: 344 with 14 plates & maps. 100293

Modern Sanskrit Literature
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8187418397 / 9788187418399; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The achievement of modern Sanskrit Literature has been called in question by various critics. As a matter of fact they are ignorant of the development of Sanskrit literature after Panditraj Jagannatha. The purpose of the present study is primarily to view the nineteenth century Sanskrit literature in its cultural context. Seen from this angle, the Sanskrit literature of the past three centuries with its amazing wealth and many-sided growth strikes one as nothing but a glorious revival reflecting the intense patriotic fervour and nationalistic upsurge.The sources are many but in particular they are from rare Sanskrit journals and material in them which could be utilized seems endless. Instead of reproducing each relevant Sanskrit writer in this study, the author's aim has been to re-introduce Appashastri Rashivadekar in broader perspective-his functional approach to Sanskrit language and literature.Printed Pages: 350. 104069

Semiotica Indica: Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Body-Language in Indian Art and Culture, 2 Vols
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8173050465 / 9788173050466; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Semiotica Indica is the first attempt to describe the semiotics of Indian culture. It is meant to provide some basic ideas, concepts and material for the study of nonverbal communication in India. It draws from works on semiotics but revolves around the core concept of communication. The book is about Indian actions, how actions become gestures and how gestures transmit messages. It covers much of the literature in Sanskrit and modern Indian languages on nonverbal communication and organizes it in a fashion useful for three purposes: (a) to provide an "ancient overview" of the nonverbal communication; (b) to map nonverbal continuity in India from Bharata's time to the present day; and (c) to establish a conceptual base into which new findings may be integrated. This encyclopaedic dictionary is a survey of Indian semiotics from Rgvedic times to the present day sketching the theoretical (Sastra) and practical (Prayoga=loka) approaches of the leading semioticians with respect to their differing objectives: classifying the Sastra and the loka; establishing the philosophical sign system for canonical representation of human thought; devising Puranas for the creation of new ideas; gaining insight into the conditions of human knowledge; increasing the efficiency of sahitya, sangita, citra, vastu, ayurveda, jyotisa, darsana and the various branches of the arts; extending communication into agama, nigama, tantra, yonija and ayonija species. The underlying world-view has crystallized in certain concepts, reflecting the understanding of body and soul, of space and time, of indriya and atindriya, of the part and the whole, of the body and the senses. "This book contains nearly 6000 terms, the complex ones are supported by illustrations. The entries are ordered alphabetically, but each of the reference is guarded by numerous cross-references. The main focus is on producing penetrating insights into semiotics in general and nonverbal communication in particular. Written in simple elegant prose and strikingly illustrated, this encyclopaedic dictionary is full of practical insights for the understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of body-language in India.
