Art of Dancing: Classical and Folk
Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2005; 8171102697 / 9788171102693; Hardcover; New; New; 
Dance is defined as the rhythmic physical movement prompted by feelings and emotions. The rhythmie movement may be of any or all parts of the body in accordance to some scheme. Every beast and human being dances to express the innermost passions.But dance as an art came into existence with the growth of human society and civilisation. We find a detailed account of this art in several old Sanskrit works- Abhinaya Darpana, Bharata’s Natyashastra, Sangita Ratnakara, Dhananjaya’s Dasharupa etc. All these books give more or less the same account of the origin of Sangita.The dance in India can be classified into three groups: The Tribal, the Folk and the Classical. The Tribal dance is the visible rhythmic formulation or expression of the joys and beliefs of a people once referred to as ‘aborigines’, but are now called Aadivasis meaning ‘original inhabitants’. Almost akin to these dances but less ritualistic in content are the folk dances, which are as varied and as reflective of the day-to-day activities of the mass of the people as their primitive crystallised and transmuted into stylised interpretations of divine activities are the classical dance forms which are practised exclusively by the votary.Printed Pages: 250. 103162

Sari: Traditional Wear of Indian Women
Parimal Publications; Delhi, India; 2002; 9788171102076; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The climate of a country plays a vital role at least in the nature and mode of wearing costume. But the nature and mode of wearing clothes are governed not only by the climate, but also by the natural resources available in that particular country. The present work is intended to give an account of the Traditional wear of Indian women, Sari as far as possible. But the History of Indian costume is laconic. There are long periods for which next to nothing is known in the realm of costume. The contribution of the costume of the Indus valley civilization is very little, but information is slowly gathered. In the matter of the costume draped, dress was known but the tailored dress is known from the period particularly the Kusanas and the Sakas. These peoples came with a new type of dress. Some elements of which were incorporated in the national costume of some classes and have remained an integral part of Indian dress. Saris are much more practical than we think especially since they can be so easily modified. Draping is an art. Yet now only A Few old women know How To do draping in a traditional is a relative term, a process of assimilation, adaptation and exchange rather than a constant unchanging reference point in the past Modern drape (modern style) is now worn by most Indian women.Printed Pages: 110 with 15 plates. 103179
